Description

This area is much closer to the road than Raker's main southwestern aspect cliff band, and thus easier to access. These rock formations are shorter, and much more overhung than they may initially appear, due to the slope at the base. These formations host's much of Lassen Park's most difficult sport routes to date, with several hard classics established during America's beginnings in sport climbing during the 1990's

Getting There

Park at the pullout as described for Raker Peak. Walk due east for a short period until you reach the flats and then head south until you see the formation. Pick the path of least resistance, usually up a shallow draw through burnt manzanita, course sand and cinder. Approximately .5 miles to the base.
