Description

Dinosaur Rocks (Upper and Lower Dinosaur Rocks) are the large formations visible from Keller Peak Road in the vicinity of Campsite 2.

Lower Dinosaur Rock, the larger of the two formations, is split by numerous cracks of varying widths and also has a number of bolted sport routes. Highlights include Wooly Mammoth (5.7), Balding in Peru (5.8), Sprockets (5.10c), Earth Daze (5.10d), Extinction (5.11b) and Savage Puppy (5.11c).

Upper Dinosaur Rock is smaller and has fewer routes, but Neanderthal Jam (5.10b), Jurassic Crack (5.10c) and Blood Donor (5.12b) are standouts.

The rock here is extremely sharp, even by Keller Peak standards, so taping up (for the crack climbs) is highly recommended.

Getting There

Lower Dinosaur Rock is easily approached via a good trail which starts from the edge of Campsite 2. Plan on about 5-10 minutes for the approach.

Upper Dinosaur Rock may be reached by hiking upslope from Lower Dinosaur Rock or more directly from a point about 0.25 miles up the road from Campsite 2. The approach takes 5-15 minutes depending upon the route taken.
