Description

It's location is in the middle of the desert so peek months are usually October-April. There's barely people there and the rock is featured/textured granite with tons of climbing. There are an infinite amount of boulders and the prime spot to do some leads are at Lowenbrau Pinnacle. LP is 2 pitches tall with a handful of quality leads.
