Description Suggest change

Coyote Crag, one of the most popular crags in the area, is located at the southern edge of the Central Pinnacles and its sunny, well-featured southeast face is home to many classic moderates routes of the area.

Almost all of the climbs here have excellent rock and tend to be vertical with plentiful holds and a brief crux.

  • During the summer the climbs here go into the shade by mid-to-late afternoon, something to consider when the weather is hot.

Getting There Suggest change

From the northern parking area hike south down the 4 wheel drive road and then cut east past the southern end of the Ampitheatre, where the crag will come into view. 

  • This approach takes about 5-10 minutes.

From the southern parking area hike north following the trail from Parking Lot Rock, passing the east face of Lost Orbit Rock, until the crag will come into view. 

  • This approach takes about 10-15 minutes.
