Psychedelic Rock is a 200 foot crag that was originally part of the Burning Spear group. There are three original Dave Bingham routes in addition to the new routes being developed.
The crag has everything from smooth slabs to steeper pockets to steep chert pinching.
The wall has 3 distinct sections.
- The left side of the wall is characterized by a broad slabby section with smooth grey limestone and the occasional pocket. There are a few routes on this section.
- The central portion is 200 feet tall and from the ground there are 5 or 6 steep routes on featured limestone which all end on a broad grassy central ledge. Above the ledge is a blank looking, hundred foot face that is actually peppered with small chert. Named "The Wall", sustained, delicate face climbing and chert pinching is common to the 6 routes that start on the ledge (these are the 'Unsorted Routes' on the route navigation pane).
- The right side of the formation has a prominent right facing dihedral that goes nearly to the summit and to the right of the dihedral is vertical, yellow and orange rock that has a significant roof about midway up. Very featured vertical grey rock continues above the overlap.
See the trail map.
The developed crags of Mortal Earth are visible from the parking, see the beta picture.
