Description

Dork Dot Rock is a short, east-facing, quartzite rock with one anchor serving two routes. It is mostly vertical and reasonably solid with a few holds that may break off with more traffic. The routes are closely bolted and the climbing is on positive edges with several sidepulls.

The face is in the shade in the late afternoon so it probably is a good evening crag in the summertime.

Getting There

The rock is located on the north side of the canyon approximately opposite and uphill from The Kitchen. To get there, cross the stream bed near the concrete chlorine treatment building and slog up a scree trail. Near the top of the scree there is a faint but obvious trail heading left. Take the trail to the base of Dork Dot Rock.

I lead climbed and had a blast, but decided not to use the super rusted chains on top. The bolts for the anchors at the top seem new but they stick out pretty far and the one on the left seems to budge a bit. Too risky for my liking. Aug 27, 2009

I think you should be able to top rope the routes on this rock without endangering life and limb too much, but I didn't actually crawl around to the top. I just looked at the top while hanging from the chains. Proceed at your own risk. Apr 28, 2007
