Description

Kelly's Rock borders a dry wash and consists of solid, rough limestone. It faces roughly north.

There are over 20 bolted, named routes here from 5.8 to 5.13 with about equal numbers in the 9's, 10's, 11's, and 12's.

Getting There

From the Woodbury Road turnoff drive 3.7 miles (3.2 according to Goss). Shortly after crossing the fourth cattle guard the parking for Black and Tan and Kelly's Rock is on the right. Walk back to the wash and turn right up the wash (or find a cairn-marked trail that cuts the corner to the wash). From the parking area to the base of the wall is approximately .2 miles (as measured using Google Earth).
