BETA PHOTO: Tick Rock area: Suicide Rock


Up and to the looker's right from the crest of the approach to Tick Rock is the small crag of Suicide Rock.

There isn't enough room at the staging area for more than around 2 people (and cramped for 2!) so consider limiting the herd to just a couple of folks. A fall from either staging area might not be fatal, but, it'd be an ugly tumble.

Take care to limit any erosion at the base of the routes. There just isn't that much solid dirt up there.

Same aspect as the main Tick Rock.

Getting There 

Crest the trail a whoppin' 30 or so seconds from the car, and take the split in the trail to the right, towards the obvious crag. Hike up the loose, steep trail and be extra careful with your footing. Very short approach, but, take your time.

Not to be confused with THE Suicide Rocks of Idyllwild, CA. Probably not much chance of that (see photo).

Not worth the walk. And the approach is short. Stick with the main wall routes, better quality rock.
