Description 

Across from King Otto's Castle is this small crag with a handful of routes including the straight-in crack of The Falcon (5.10b) and the excellent stemming corner of The Condor (5.12a).

Despite it's relatively close location to the campground proper this can actually be a good place to get away from the crowds and sample some fun routes.


Getting There 

More or less directly south of and across the road from King Otto's Castle. A large inverted "V" is a prominent landmark. Approach time is about 10 minutes from parking near King Otto's Castle.

Climbing Season

For the Indian Cove Campground area.

Weather station 6.4 miles from here

This is one of the better climbs of Indian Cove and one of the classic stem problems of Josh. Other notable stemming corners include Coarse and Buggy (5.11a), Wavecrest (5.11c), 29 Palms (5.11d), Scary Monsters (5.12a) and Warrior Eagle (5.12b). Of course there are others but these typify their grade and have excellent moves on high-quality rock.Originally done with fixed pins which are now missing; without pins this may deserve an "R" rating, so be careful. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
