Description

A small formation that sits to the northwest and slightly downhill from the Lower Gibraltar (Lieback Annie/Rapture) area. Some fun moderate topropes and harder leads can be found here, and all routes can be easily toproped. Two sets of bolted anchors atop the formation.

Getting There

Park at the next major turnout uphill from the parking area for Lower Gibraltar. Hike down the ridge to the west and cut left when the ridgeline ends. A short scramble through loose dirt and brush gets you to the backside of Phantom Rock. Get to the base via one of two ways: rap in from the top, or scramble down right around the base towards a large oak tree. The striking dihedral near the oak tree is Scorpion Exile (5.10a).

Just hit this today 1/27/18. The "short scramble through loose dirt and brush" is a good bushwhack. It looks as if this seldom gets touched. A fun one to check out if other routes in the area are crowded. Wear long sleeves and pants for the approach. Jan 27, 2018
