Also called the Spud Wall or Cornerstone, the southwest face is the "golden goose" of Rabbit Rock. This crag has the goods! With over twice as many stars as there are routes, its almost impossible to leave this place sad. The lines here tend to be long, so be advised you may need double ropes, a 70 meter, or be on the watch for intermediate anchors.

Recommended Routes: All

Morning shade / Afternoon sun.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the parking lot towards the east side (right) of Parking Lot Rock. Look for the right fork that crosses the creek and breaks back left towards the base.

A really great sport route that was described by Todd Skinner around 1987 as "the best sport climb in America." While I doubt that was true, it is easy to understand the enthusiasm the gregarious Skinner issued toward this climb. Power underclings with smears for feet follow the arch to a stance where you then climb direct and surmount the roof to the face above. You then essentially follow the strange vertical white quartz dike surrounded by great patina edges that later become huge jugs. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
