Description

This is the highest elevation crag at lost horse, and probably the most out of the way. What this area lacks in concentration and approach time, it makes up for in quality. Here you can find the super classic splitter crack Jamboree, as well as some sport routes and mixed routes. One of the harder classic lost horse lines is also in this area, Relentless. A great area to head to on hot days as you can chase some shade through the day.

Getting There

This area can be accessed by parking at the quarry and then heading to the main wall, and continuing uphill past it. If you plan to spend the whole day at this crag the shorter approach starts from the observation point. From the main road take a right on rd 496(lots of trash cans) that leads to coyote coulee, camas cr, and observation point. Take this rd for about 9 miles and look for the turnoff to observation point. From the parking lot head southwest downhill. You should be able to spot some small cairns that mark a faint trail. Follow these which take you down the slope and trending west. Once you come to a very large cairn on a point on the ridge, take a right on the trail to drop into a notch and down some steep rock and scree. You should be able to spot the crags here or keep on the obvious trail. About 30 mins.

Climbed the crack on the left side of upper wall (home of bop gun). Some fun moves - not much reason to repeat it, but it goes. Climb leftward in crack to gain low angle wide crack. After cruising the easy wide crack, hand traverse right on a broken rock seam (questionable pro) then up through short dihedral and some stacked blocks. Gear anchor, walk off. Jul 10, 2017
