Park .2 mi past the Haus Rock turn off. There is going to be a large parking turn off on the left side of the road after a sharp turn and large boulder. The parking is large enough for 6-8 cars. Head up a trail from the eastern end of the lot (right of parking). follow the trail up and to the left for about 5 minutes.

Fun area to climb, but some of the most bizarre top rope bolt placements I've ever seen.... May 28, 2010

Anybody have info on the 2 bolted routes on the rock just west of Zuma Rock? May 10, 2013
That's known as Zuma West. Left route is 10-, 5 bolts. Right route is 8+/9, 5 bolts. Both are good quality routes that don't seem to see a lot of traffic. Sep 9, 2013
