Description 

The prouder side of Window Rock, the west facing crag is a steep, bulging, over-hung, version of its back. With a handful of three star classics, this is a wall that should not be missed. Bring your A game, the west side can be rough.

The west side of Window Rock closes regularly for raptor nesting. Please watch and obey closures.

Morning shade / afternoon sun.

Getting There 

The next most significant formation set back and north from Parking Lot Rock. Follow the trail down and left of Parking Lot Rock toward a juncture that breaks hard left to the base of Window Rock.

Harvest 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  ID : City of Rocks : ... : Window Rock - West
Some slab, body English, great finger locks, and an offwidth finish sum it up. Harvest would be a classic except for the bushes in the lower crack. The climb starts in a lower angle V before going vertical in a flared chimney for a move or 2. The crack moves on to the face with the crux above the small roof where rattly fingers lead to a great hand jam and a desperate move (for me) into the offwidth.Descend from slings around a chockstone. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID

There is a bolted route just to the right of She's The Bosch which is not posted here or in the guide. Anyone know the story?

I think I remember hearing it was a 5.11. Haven't climbed it though.
