This is the section of rock just right of the descent/ascent scramble. Usually vacant, this area of Bath Rock is a nice escape when the main area is over-populated.

Home of the heavily constructed "Rebar Route", the southwest climbing draws a lot of attention from families, kids, dogs, and whatever else decides to "climb" to the summit. Don't let the train distract you, smile and wave hello!

Getting There 

Cross the road from the parking lot and follow the well marked path to the south (left) side of the steep wall until you turn the sharp arete/corner. Scramble up about 20 feet to the base of the routes.

White Hueco's 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  Idaho : City of Rocks : ... : Bath Rock - Southwest
This steep route is located on the SW corner of the rock and enjoys some late evening rays away from the crowded west face. You can belay from the ground, but a 4th class approach will deposit you on a ledge below the climb. Follow "white huecos" through overhanging rock. There are a number of route finding cruxes, which add to the pump factor. The third bolt is poorly placed and levers your biner open, so be careful.
