Description

Lone Rock is located at the end of the driving on the Mexican Mountain Road. The West Face and Owl's Eyes (East side) are both listed in the Bjornstad Desert Rock "blue" book. This is some of the better tower sandstone found in the Swell and camping is usually done at a pull out just before the maintained road's end with Lone Rock's South Face in full view.

Getting There

Drive to the the North end of the Mexican Mountain Road. Study the south flank where a break in the cliff bands allow access to the base of the tower. Plan for about a one hour approach time.

The approach is longer that you might think and challenged by cliff bands which are difficult to pass. We approached the North Face from the SE (near the river crossing for Mexican Mountain Traverse), it took us more than 2 hours. After further consideration my next approach will be from the West (approximately 3/4 mile before the end of the road), the road is closest here and the path is more direct (more steep too). Good Luck! Apr 12, 2015
