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 East 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 put the routes on the West face of North End Pinnacle here.

We'll organize the routes here from South Ridge Of The North Pinnacle, 5 X, to Direct Start, 6, wrapping around from the South to East to North to West faces.

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 below 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.

There is a ledge system from the north end that traverses under this face.
