Description 

Lower Dinosaur Rock, the larger of the two formations, is split by numerous cracks of varying widths and also has a number of bolted sport routes. Highlights include Wooly Mammoth (5.7), Balding in Peru (5.8), Sprockets (5.10c), Earth Daze (5.10c), Cinder (5.11a), Extinction (5.11b) and Savage Puppy (5.11c).

The rock here is extremely sharp, even by Keller Peak standards, so taping up (for the crack climbs) is highly recommended.

Getting There 

Lower Dinosaur Rock is easily approached via a good trail which starts from the edge of Campsite 2. Plan on about 5-10 minutes for the approach.

Located slightly right of center on the north face of Lower Dinosaur Rock. Look for the smoothest, nicest-looking section of wall with a horizontal crack at mid-height; this is the left of three bolted lines. Slab climbing past two bolts leads to a horizontal (optional pro here) which bisects the face at mid-height. Above the angle steepens and interesting face moves culminate with the crux right before the anchors.The route was initially done on Earth Day...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
