Description

Midway Rock is a set of several pillars 200 yards east of Pinch Me Wall. From Pinch Me Wall it only looks like a tiny boulder, but once you get around to the north face of the north pinnacle it suddenly pops out with a whopping 85' drop, one of the tallest at LOTL. The chains are 15' below the top of the spire to prevent rope drag, but you can easily set a top rope off gear.

There are currently three very fun, juggy routes.

Getting There

From Pinch Me Wall, hike directly east following a trail and cairns. 20 yards into the trail, instead of continuing the trail for the northeast side of Bigfoot Mating Grotto, turn right and follow a trail through the brush. Hike 200 yards across the slope following a well defined trail and cairns.

3-5 minute easy approach from Pinch Me Wall.
