BETA PHOTO: The Mini-Mall and Desert Whale as seen from the to...


The Mini-Mall is a group of large boulders on top of a hillside north of Rattlesnake Forks. Four bolt protected routes and one TR, on quality rock, are 30' - 40' high and vary in difficulty from 5.11 - 5.12. Most of the routes face north but Desert Whale (5.11b) faces southwest.

Getting There 

Walk up Rattlesnake Canyon past the turnoff for the Corral Wall. About 100 yards above the waterfall, head west up a steep hillside to the large boulders perched on top of the hill. The approach is 15 - 20 minutes from the parking lot.

This short but engaging 3 bolt sport climb ascends the slightly overhanging face of a large boulder on the west end of the Mini-Mall complex. Powerful lockoffs gain large incut edges enroute to the top. The climbing and movement is similar to "Sonic Temple" and "Realm of the Flying Monkeys" in Oz....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
