Description

This portion of the Arid Piles has the highest concentration of routes with close to twenty routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.12c with a fairly even mix of crack and face routes. Morning shade and afternoon sun.

Some of the better routes here are the finger crack of Mr. Bunny Quits (5.10a), the exhilarating Edge of Doom (5.10c), the stemming testpiece 29 Palms (5.11d) and the technical and brilliant Quickstone (5.12c R).

Getting There

Approach from the end of the Lost Horse Road or the parking area at Real Hidden Valley, although the latter is slightly shorter timewise. The approach takes 10-20 minutes depending upon your starting point.
