DescriptionLocated midway between the lower parking area and the Central Pinnacles (i.e Coyote Crag, Claim Jumper Wall and others), this is a good area to escape the frequent crowds of the more popular areas of the Pinnacles.
The west side has a collection of moderate cracks and slab routes, but it's the east face with it's varied, more difficult and higher quality climbs that truly shines and makes this an ideal destination for those warmer days of summer. With almost twenty quality lines to choose from on the east side alone there's plenty to choose from and enough space to accomodate several parties at once.
Getting ThereIf 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.
