A tall east/west facing buttress, Parking Lot Rock is home to around 24 routes with the majority in the 5.7 to 5.9 range. This is a low approach cliff with potential for day-round climbing as the sun switches faces. As with most City of Rocks areas, most routes have some trad gear needed with 6 or so exceptions. There are a few clasics on this cliff. Delay of Game, Norma's Book, Batwings, Funky Bolt, and Just Another Pretty Face all deserve classic status.
Getting There [Edit]
Take Emery Canyon Road off of City of Rocks Road, until you pass campsites 64 & 65. Park at the parking lot on the right. Parking Lot Rock is the obvious cliff closest to the Parking Lot (hence the name).
