Description Suggest change

A crag with a number of great moderates, the west side of Parking Lot Rock is rarely missed. The more popular face of the formation, expect to wait a bit on a few of the classics. A great spot for all climbing styles, if you climb here expect to have an all-star day.

The routes on the west face of Parking Lot Rock tend to be quite tall. Double ropes or a 70 meter is required to get down. To descend, rappel the anchors of Delay of Game or use double ropes to rappel two of the anchors atop of Batwings. To the direct south, there is one more double rope rappel available too.

A popular crag, please be courteous of others. Expect other climbers may be trying to get down, share or offer a line when rappelling to help expedite things.

Morning shade / afternoon sun.

Getting There Suggest change

From the parking lot of the area, follow the trail dead-center to the crag.
