Description 

Coyote Crag, one of the most popular crags in the area, is located at the southern edge of the Central Pinnacles and its sunny, well-featured southeast face is home to many classic moderates routes of the area.

Almost all of the climbs here have excellent rock and tend to be vertical with plentiful holds and a brief crux. Recommended routes here include Bye Crackie (5.7), Coyotes at Sunset (5.8), Black Magic Poodle (5.9) and Golden Poodle (5.9).

During the summer the climbs here go into the shade by mid-to-late afternoon, something to consider when the weather is hot.

Routes listed from left to right:

Black Magic Poodle (5.9)
Golden Spike (5.10b)
Hootenanny (5.10a)
High Noon (5.10b)
Golden Poodle (5.9)
Pass the Bucket (5.8 PG13)
Coyotes at Sunset (5.8)
Bye Crackie (5.7)
Es Muy Bueno (5.8)
Western Farm Service (5.8)
Red Brewster (5.9 R)

and further right on a separate block are

Eight Second Ride (5.8)
Saddle Tramp (5.9 TR)

Getting There 

From the northern parking area hike south down the 4 wheel drive road and then cut east past the southern end of the Ampitheatre, where the crag will come into view. This approach takes about 5-10 minutes.

From the southern parking area hike north following the trail from Parking Lot Rock, passing the east face of Lost Orbit Rock, until the crag will come into view. This approach takes about 10-15 minutes.

This route, like it's neighbor to the right, is a local classic and a highly recommended route for the grade that provides fun climbing on mostly large holds up a vertical wall.Start down and left from Bye Crackie and just right of Golden Poodle and climb broken rock to a bolt 20' up (optional gear to 2.5" available). From here the wall steepens and well-protected climbing on mostly incut patina plates and edges leads to anchors on a sloping ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
