DescriptionThis rock is mostly top roping, though at a "mere" 30 feet, many people choose to boulder a lot of the routes as well.
Being out in the open, this rock will always be in the sun on one side or the other. It's out in the open, so this is a great place to climb on a sunny day. On a foggy, windy day, there is very little protection from the elements, and this would be a very chilly place to be.
Most routes are probably best lowered off, though brave souls will need to downclimb a 5.2 route to get off of the rock.
Pelican Arete (5.10a) is a must do, and is a pretty tough 5.10a!
Getting ThereApproach time: 5 minutes.
From the turnoff into Gaot Rock State Park, drive ~ 1/4 mile to a large pullout on the left. There are several of these pullouts, and almost all will get you to the rocks. If the road goes up the hill and bends to the right, you've gone a little too far, and should turn around.
From the parking pullout, hike downhill into the meadow, where the rocks are a can't miss.
This is the tallest of the rocks.
