Red Obelisk Area

California > San Bernardino… > N Slope > Juniper Flats Area


A classy free standing pinnacle with three pretty stout sport climbs, and another fin with a splitter 5.9 hand crack and a .10a slab 5 minutes walk further

Getting There

From Apple Valley, take Central Road to Ocotillo and turn left. Follow Ocotillo to Bowen Ranch Rd. and turn right onto the dirt. Follow Bowen Ranch Rd. for approximately five miles, staying right on Bowen Ranch at the split with Coxey Truck Trail. Approximately 1 mile past the Bowen Ranch/Coxey Truck junction, turn right onto the power line maintenance road, opposite Bubba Rocks,  and follow it 3/4 of a mile. Turn right on a dirt track and follow this a half mile to the Red Obelisk. The last 200 yards are 4x4. The Fin, split on it’s right side by Classic Hands, is visible from the Obelisk and is a further 5 minutes walk west
