Description

This area covers everything to the west of the Central Pinnacles and includes the Mushroom Boulder, The Ingot, The Mine Shaft, Bullet Hole Wall, the Lost and Found Crag and others.

Less frequented than the other parts of the Pinnacles, this area is a good place to escape the more crowded crags of the Central Pinnacles. Routes tend to be on huge blocks/boulders with a few exceptions.

Recommended routes in the area:

Getting There

Starting from a large clearing southwest of the Pistol Whipped Wall head west and then northwest along a narrow dirt road (passing an old cement foundation on the left) which leads to a large circular parking area (used for the Mushroom Boulder, Bullet Hole Wall and The Ingot).

The road continues west and then southwest passing some old mines on both sides of the road, and then uphill for a section until you reach another parking area near the Vice Wall (park here for the Vice Wall, Double P Wall and The Saloon).

Further along the road heads south and downhill passing a parking area for The Mine Shaft, which sits just past an obvious open mine.

It's about a 10-20 minute walk from the Central Pinnacles depending upon which crag you're visiting; driving will lessen the approach time, but be advised that larger/longer vehicles may have some difficulty in negotiating the narrow, twisting dirt roads of the area; a four wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended.
