Description

A WAYYY out-of-the-way crag with easy (1 min.) walkup access from a high-clearance vehicle. Excellent low-angle to steeper slabbing in a mountain oasis in the high desert.

Getting There

High clearance mandatory, 4 WD nice. Take the Agate Flats road exit N about 5 mi past Split Rocks. Then take a GOOD topo or BLM map. The "roads" shown in Lander Rock are not much better than wagon ruts across the prairie. Deep sand in places, narrow, and lots of sagebrush.
