Description [Suggest Change]

Sunny, on a late June morning. We saw 4 or 5 parties hike past us as we were climbing. It was a Saturday, but I would call that crowded. The rock is good quality granite - great for friction and not rough on my hands.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

The approach is the same as other climbs at Jurassic Park. The approach hike took us 20 minutes. Left Hand Rock was the first rock with a line of bolts we saw.
