DescriptionVisible from nearby Interstate 15 these large sandstone formations having been eyed by passing climbers for decades and despite the ease of access and proximity to a large population of climbers very little documented climbing has gone on here.
Numerous old bolts and the odd piton scattered about suggest climbing has gone on here since the 1950's but very little information is known about the early pioneers. These days few climbers frequent the area and popular activities here include scrambling, rappelling and off-roading.
The rock is a variable quality sandstone conglomerate not unlike that found at Devil's Punchbowl and Texas Canyon. Rock quality can vary from formation to formation and even on different sides of the same formation with the north-facing slabs tending to have the best quality rock.
