Description Suggest change

This formation is mostly for the "crack" addicts and has on it the "must do" Blues Brothers (5.10a)*** (Page 123 Vogels Guide). The rock is beautiful Yosemite-like granite unlike the majority of rough rock in the park. No parking exists beyond the gate at the end of Lost Horse Road. Walk in approx. half of a mile. Stay on the road and please do not blaze your own trail. There is a 2-bolt rap anchor at the top of Out of the Blue. 90-foot rappel. Standard rack.

Getting There Suggest change

Turn off at the Lost Horse Road and park at the gate at the end of the public access (as for Atlantis, Super Heros, Ranger Station Rocks, etc.). Walk the closed road til below the Ranger Station, which will be up on your right. Continue on the left (lower) of two dirt roads (the upper goes toward the S Cracks) for a couple hundred yards and look right for the formation furthest to the left. It should be obvious due to the different looking rock. Scramble up the hill to the base and have at it.
