Description

A fun winter crag with vertical to slightly overhanging routes up a 30 to 50 foot wall. Nice selection of grades from 5.8 to 5.11. Shade until about 11 am, then sun all day. Rock quality is mostly good, but expect some loose rock as is typical of lower highway crags, especially when new. All routes are bolted and have quick lower anchors. Nice hang and great views. Belayers are advised to wear a helmet.

Getting There

Most of the approach is the same as for Cactus Ranch. Park at the pullout at approximately mile 3.6, a bit below the 4000 foot elevation sign. This pullout is on the left side of the road as you go uphill. Cross the road, and walk uphill for 50 to 100 feet to a cairn. Follow talus down and left, and pick up a trail that is now easy to follow down to the creek. Cross the creek bed and pick up another cairn on the far side of the creek. Follow the trail steeply up and right, then roughly straight up. As you get slightly above the level of the parked car, the trail will come to a large mesquite tree. Here, the trail to Cactus Ranch turns sharply right, and the trail to Lockdown Rock goes left. Follow this trail, mostly traversing, but with slight ups and down all the way to Lockdown Rock. Expect 25 to 30 minutes from the car to the crag.
