Description 

Overhanging freestanding pillar with patina and a crack running up.

Getting There 

Follow directions to Giant Rock. Continue around the base of the mountain. You will see a quartz hill to the left. Turn up the dirt road before the quartz hill, so the hill is on your right. The pillar will be on your left. Park at the base and hike up the rock scree field to the base of the route.

Penny Lane 5.13a/b 8a 29 IX+ 29 E7 6c  California : High Desert : ... : Spartan's Head
This route was named after my niece who was born November 21, 2016. She was being delivered as I was working this project. Just a few days later, November 26, 2016 it was done free by Isamer Bilog. This is a very bouldery style climb. Powerful moves off the deck. Lead to a cruxy, flaring crack. Several moves later you are over the business and bust up to the slabbed out finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
