Description

The Hobo Car is a sunny bit of rock up on the hillside just in front of a huge pull-off (north side, at 7 miles). The slabby aspect and the large roof are visible uphill from the parking area.

The rock seems generally solid, but there are only a few routes to be had. The approach is sketchy (see below), so this crag may be worth skipping.

Getting There

This crag is found 7 miles up-canyon (from the T-intersection in Lyons) shortly after mile marker 26. Park in a large pull-out / parking area on the north side of the road (not in the parking area a thousand yards down-canyon on the other side of the road). Hike uphill from the western portion of the lot.

The approach is steep, though straightforward. The descent is downright treacherous, as there are lots of cacti and slippery grass plants with no real "trail."

There are lots of large, loose rocks on the hillside which can slide toward the parking area.

It's a short but strenuous hike (10-15 minutes on slippery grasses).
