Description

With over a dozen routes from 5.7 to 5.11 and a minimal approach this southwest-facing (morning shade/afternoon sun) crag is a popular venue especially during the winter. The normal descent is done by heading down a rocky gully on the backside (past Offramp, 5.10a/b on the right) and circling back around to the base.

Some of the better routes here include Cakewalk (5.8), Nobody Walks in LA (5.9), Sig Alert (aka Cast Up a Highway) (5.10b), Anacram (5.10c) and The Talking Fish (5.10c/d).

Getting There

Access via the Lost Horse Road and park where available near the formation. A worn climber's trail leads into boulders where some uphill scrambling leads to the base of the wall. Plan on anywhere from 10-20 minutes for the approach.
