The far left route is mainly just an approach pitch for the severely overhanging, thin and very hard looking project on the arete/face above. Still, if you're in the area, this route is worth doing.

Make a move up a small step to get established on the rock. Slab your way up past a small roof to gain the awesome holds and jugs. Cruise up these to the two bolt anchor on the large ledge.


This is the left-most sport route on the west side of Lion's Head.


Five bolts to a two bolt anchor with chains. A single 60m rope will suffice.

I bolted this route to access the steep stuff up higher but found it to be quite good. I plan on sending the upper part this summer!

I am not sure who to talk to about adding the Geowatt formation but this is right next to the lions head there are 2 5.9s a 10a and a 10c that are listed in the guide book but there is a new climb on the north end of the west face that is 5.7 bolts and pro that I would give 4 stars. you pass it as you hike down to the lions head from the trail that passes north of the formation

You should go to the main City of Rocks page on Mountain Project and click the "add area" tab near the top of the description. Then you can be the author of the Geowatt page! You can enter in routes and their descriptions: that is what makes MP so great - all of us climbers taking time to share our tidbits of information! Please get on it for all of us (I wanna climb these routes you speak of)!
