Hard to see from the parking lot why it is called heart rock, but from a little farther south or as you approach, it becomes obvious. Mostly high moderates (11's +).

Getting There 

As with all New Directions areas. From the parking lot head south to the next pullout and up the well marked trail. Heart rock is the first crag yo come to.

Climbing Season

For the The Needles / Kern River area.
