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.

Forbidden Fruit is marked by a very impressive 45-degree overhanging prow top out. Climb the first four bolts of Grow A Pear and instead of following the chimney, start stemming up and out until you can reach a good enough hold to pull into the overhang. Trust the jug and let your feet cut wildly. Two more bolts and steep jugs (with a few long reaches) land you on a giant clipping jug above the chains.It would be possible to exit the roof out left, but that would actually not be any easier; it i...[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.
