Description 

This slabby face is home to about ten routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.11 with an fairly even mix of crack and face climbs. Rock quality ranges from fairly good to atrocious with the seldom done Shit Sandwich (5.9 R/X) an indication of just how bad things can get.

X-Rated Tits (5.9) and An Eye for an Eye And a Route for a Route (5.10b) are some of the more popular routes at this wall.

Getting There 

Approach via the well-marked trail leading to Barker Dam. Lakeside Rock is the obvious slabby face just to the east of the dam.

An Eye for an Eye And a Route for a Route 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Lakeside Rock - West Face
Begin near the right side of the previously mentioned roof and climb a slab up to the base of the roof. Set a piece (small cams work well) and pull the roof (crux) exiting onto more slabby face. From here seven bolts lead up and then left and up to a bolted anchor/rap.Almost a sport route except for the piece needed under the roof, this is a well-protected climb that has good moves on good rock. If you have a 50 meter rope be careful as the rap is about 85'....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
