About to pull into the overhang. This is one spot ...


One of the further out crags at Land Of The Lost. Blistering hot in the summer until it goes into the shade, but a great spring/fall spot. Mostly short (4-5 bolt) sport routes.

Getting There 

Down the creek from the Pinch Me Wall. Easiest access is to follow the ridge line southeast from the main parking (Pinch Me, Snag Crag, etc.) for ~20-25 minutes. The wall will be on your left in the creekbed, and is inobvious until you are on top of it. You'll see a couple of other walls across the creek from the Tropics Wall, head left and down to the base.

Grow a Pear is an exciting line up the outside of the obvious chimney in the center of the rock. From a distance, it may not look like much, but when you get up to it, the route is steep, well featured, and very safe. Clipping the 5th bolt will test the rope management skills of new leaders. It is a great beginner lead or warm up for the other harder climbs around. Aside from directing falls in a safe direction, the draws keep the rope completely off the rock.Bolt finding beta:Near the bush afte...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

The trail is constantly improving and is already in great condition with lots of cairns to mark the way.

There is an alternate approach for this wall. See my comment in the main LOTL section.
