Description

Railroad Rocks is two small crags right on... you guessed it... the railroad tracks, just east of the rest area on Homestake Pass. The climbing is balancy and technical.

Getting There

Park at the west bound rest area, look for the path across the creek on the northeast end of the parking area. The trail leaves from the REST AREA not the Homestake EXIT (as shown on the map).
Follow the railroad tracks east for a little less than half mile until you come to a dark, bolted slab above the tracks. Look for the words “RYSINZUBE 88” etched on the rock about 20 feet up. Twist of Fate and Cleavage can be found 50 feet further down the tracks.
