Description

The Saddle Rocks Area covers the large slab of Saddle Rocks as well as peripheral areas like the Theoretical Boulder and the seldom visited Cowboy Crags. Stacks of quality crack and face routes up to 3 pitches in length are found here including the popular Right On (5.5) and Walk on the Wild Side (5.8).

Getting There

Park at the large paved lot that's used for Hall of Horrors, cross the road and follow a signed trail to the base of the rock. Approach time to the base is about 15 minutes.
