Description

On the right side of US 120, a couple hundred feet west of the main Olmsted Point tourist view, is a small turn off with room for about 4 cars in front of a big pond/lagoon (GPS 11S 289868 4187923). On the backside of the pond/lagoon is the classic of the Olmsted area: the highball "Conquistador" crack (V8). A recently completed addition is the Olmstead OW roof (V5). There are also a few nice face-slab problems on the little wave facing the lagoon/pond.

Getting There

Park off US 120 in the small turn off for the Ivory Tower/Lord Caffeine climbing area and approach the boulder problems on flat easy trails around the canyon and lagoon.
