Description

This is a subarea entry to help facilitate the L->R ordering of routes, since this massif belies ordinary organization.

The routes here are on the West Face of Keyhole Rock, which is listed as "Sleeping Giant" on the park map.

The complicating part of this reorganization is that some routes on the West face of Keyhole Rock are also on the North End Pinnacle. So, to try to keep this reorganization with contiguous subformations, we'll keep the routes on the West face of North End Pinnacle separate. Sorry if this causes confusion.

The lone route that sort of doesn't quite fit here is South Ridge, but it fits better here than elsewhere in this reorganization.

Getting There

There are parking spots to the Northwest and South of the formation on Juniper Way Loop that circles around to the West of the climbing formations. Parking at either and a short hike on trail and then off trail briefly will lead you to this face.

However, the park is small, so you could easily walk from the North main parking area between North and South Gateway Rocks and head south past Montezuma's Tower and then Keyhole Rock.
