Description 

South Horror Rock, one of the closest rocks to the parking area, is home to a number of fun and challenging routes that due to a minimal approach often see traffic.

Some of the better climbs here include the fun crack of Lazy Day (5.7), the balancy and slabby arete that's Garden Angel (5.10a), Dog Day Afternoon (5.10b) with it's steep face climbing and Cactus Flower (5.11b) which requires a combination of power and grace to succeed.

Getting There 

Easily reached via a good trail from the paved parking area.

Climbing Season

Dog Day Afternoon 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : South Horror Rock
Start in the rocky notch between the two towers and climb solid edges on nice brown rock past four bolts to a ledge (3" piece here). One more bolt and some stemming lead to the top and a bolted anchor/rap. A standout climb of the area that should not be missed. Three stars out of five....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
