Description

This is the large face seen from throughout the valley and is home to a number of quality crack and slab routes up to 5.12 in difficulty. Some of the better ones here include Right On (5.5), Walk on the Wild Side (5.8), Where Have all the Cowboys Gone (5.10d) and Silver Spur (5.12).

Getting There

Hike east following the marked trail which leads directly to the massive west face of Saddle Rocks. The approach takes about 10 minutes from the parking lot at Hall of Horrors.
