Description

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 single tree that has many slings and a rap ring to rap off of. 60m rope fine. Standard rack.

Getting There

Turn off at the Lost Horse Road and park at the gate at the end of the public access. Walk the road passing the Ranger Station on your right. Continue 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.
