Description

The Outback area is the furthest west portion of Mothers, beyond Other Mothers. Most of the routes are found on the west-facing slab that is 120-130 feet tall and stays in the shade until ~11:00.

Getting There

From the Mothers parking lot, approach as for Other Mothers. When the trail gets close to Other Mothers (~30 yards) and passes through a dead juniper, follow cairns west. Traverse west and then up into the gully that separates Mothers from the next buttress. The approach takes about 25 minutes.

Despite the longer approach, this is a great area that offers good routes of varying difficulty. I would recommend this area to those who typically go to Lower Mothers and the toe of Sunday Wall. Some great slab climbs. Oct 15, 2014
