It is difficult to stop and place gear in the firs...


Another popular spot, the east side of Parking Lot Rock is pretty good. More slab-oriented than its opposite, technique and foot work will be a must. Routes here range from 5.8 to 5.11, with the main concentration being in the 5.10 range. Get your slab on!

Another tall crag, a 60 meter rope will work for most, however a 70m rope will be more convienient.

Morning sun / afternoon shade.

Getting There 

From the main parking lot, follow the trail either left or right to reach the east side of the crag. Continue along the trail that skirts closest to the formation.

This is the first sport route to the right of "Just another Pretty Face" on the East side of Parking lot rock. The climb trends right with some fun fiction moves with palming and underclings. The climb eases for a few moves. The crux is at the bulge above. It can be climbed on the left with poor feet. A fun variation goes to the right with interesting underclings.
