Climbers on the 6th pitch of Off the Couch.


This north/north-east facing wall is the left-most climbing area on the front wall facing the campgrounds. There are three excellent multi-pitch routes here.

Routes from left to right:

Satori – 5.10c
3 Stone Place – 5.11d
Zapatista – 5.12a

(the first two start close together and Zapatista is located far to the right of them).

Getting There 

Hike up the mining road for a couple of minutes and turn left on the trail for El Bobo. Follow the red painted arrows/dots up past El Bobo (the dunce-hat-shaped formation) and continue up the third class ridge. When you get to the red arrows pointing in different directions head right for the Zapatista route and straight for the other two routes (35-45 minutes).

Climbing Season
