This 16M rock is a reasonable winter day hangout, having a climb or two in the sun at almost any given time of day. The stone here is mostly good and the S/SW face holds a majority of the routes. Some of the routes are jamcracks, others are thin edging or steep jugs. The ratings (mostly easy) the accessibility (easy to TR) and relative closeness to the road (3 min walk) combined with the sun will assure that you will not be alone here on the weekend, however, and may find yourself waiting to do a few lines. As well, the routes are very close together, so one TR might cover several potential lines.
To descend, scramble off South and slightly East to reach the base (3rd class). Take trad gear and a few runners. No bolts here.
Directions: Park at the roadside parking nearby the Roadside Rock, along Quail Springs Road (the main road through the park. This is just Northwest of the Lost Horse turnoff. Hike in on a reasonably obvious trail to the NE Face and go around the rock to start identifying with your Topo or descriptions.

|While there are no "stand out" routes at Lizard's Hangout, it is nonetheless a nice cold day destination. Easy to tick all 11 routes in a few hours. Sun exposure all day.|

|Trashcan Rock v2, with less people and more face climbing. Great way to wrap up any day with some easy solo climbing ( for those of us who dont free solo anything even remotely hard)|
