Description Suggest change

The east face of Lost Orbit Rock is taller, steeper and less broken in appearances than the west face, and is home to a fun and varied collection of routes from 5.7-5.12a in difficulty. The majority of routes here are sport climbs, but a few quality trad lines do exist.

Routes to do here include Lost Orbit (5.10b), Lunar Eclipse (5.10d), Nowhere to go but Down (5.11c) and Road Crew (5.12a).

Getting There Suggest change

If coming from the north and the vicinty of Coyote Crag hike west past Camp Rock and pick up a well-worn trail that leads south through the woods. When the trail splits head left and continue southeast a short distance until the northwest corner of the formation comes into view. Allow 5-10 for the approach.

From the southern parking area head north along the west face of Parkinglot Rock and then jog slightly northeast along a faint trail which leads to the southern end of the formation near the route Sloping Beauty. Allow 5 minutes for the approach.
