DescriptionThis area covers all of the formations from the northern parking area south to Camp Rock and includes Coyote Crag, Claim Jumper Wall, Pistol Whipped Wall, Motherlode Rock, Gunsmoke Wall, Thunderbird Wall and much more.
This area truly is the heart of the Pinnacles and offers the greatest concentration of routes with the least amount of hiking in the entire region. The abundance of well-protected, featured moderates in the area makes it especially popular during the height of the season, so be warned if seeking solitude.
Recommended routes in the area:
- Gold Standard (5.6)
- Bye Crackie (5.7)
- Coyotes at Sunset (5.8)
- Black Magic Poodle (5.9)
- Claim Jumper (5.10a)
- One Armed Bandit (5.10a)
- Ricochet (5.10a)
- Pistol Pete (5.10a)
- Doc's Holiday (5.10c)
- Coyotes in the Henhouse (5.10c)
- Stake Your Claim (5.10c)
- The Incinerator (5.12a)
Getting ThereThe northern parking area is located at the edge of the Central Pinnacles, making it an obvious choice to park and walk the 5-10 minutes required to reach any of the crags in the Central Pinnacles.
It's also possible to park at the southern parking area, near Parking Lot Rock, and walk north for 10 minutes to reach the southern end of the area near Coyote Crag.
