DescriptionThe west face of Lost Orbit Rock is somewhat slabby and broken in appearance, but despite that it offers some enjoyable routes, mostly gear protected, in the 5.7-5.10 range.
While not as challenging or high quality as the climbs on the east face, the routes here are fun and provide another option if in the area.
Some of the better routes here include Bear's Choice (5.6), Bear Essence (5.10a) and Ursa Major (5.10c).
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.
