Description

Lookout Shelf is a low east-facing cliff that lies below the eastern foot of Mosaic Rock. Only a smattering of shortish routes are recorded down here, but it gets afternoon shade, and is off the beaten path.

Getting There

Jackson's guidebook indicates that the approach starts from the parking lot, and instead of using the standard approach through the left gate, use the right gate and head north along the east side of the barbed wire fence, past the east side of South Rock. That approach will get you there, but it's probably just as easy to get there from the standard approach too (going around the west side of South Rock).

From the standard approach, once you're in the little valley between Mosaic Rock and South Rock, walk as far east as you can and you will arrive at the top of the Lookout Shelf cliff. Veer a little to the south and drop down a Class 2 gully through the cliff. Turn a sharp left and clamber north through the boulders along the base of the cliff to the climbs.
