This west-facing crag sits at the end of the road that parallels the fenceline and is the southern-most crag at the Pinnacles. A number of short but fun crack and face lines are here with Nice Cleavage (5.6), Five O'Clock Shadow (5.11b) and Cling Plus (5.11c) being among the best. Morning and late afternoon shade.

Getting There 

Approach via forest road 3N07, which parallels the obvious fenceline, and drive to the end of the road where the crag will be obvious. The approach is all of a minute or less.

This is the left-tending hand crack on the south side of Parking Lot Rock. It starts down on the right side of a large boulder. Do a few moderate moves to work your way up the space between the boulder and the main wall. From atop the boulder, take the crack head on. There are plenty of hand jams and foot jams, plus the occasional face hold. I don’t recall much of a crux, just fun, moderate crack climbing. This one is very short but well worth it if you want to do some trad climbing in Ho...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
