Freeway Wall is a long formation with two distinct sections. It is easily identified by a prominent rampy slab on its south side on the chunk furthest from the road. The wall is popular and has several excellent 5.9 and harder climbs like Cakewalk
and Nobody Walks in LA
Head south on the Lost Horse dirt road. Freeway Wall is the first large formation reached and has a 4 car pullout, from which the rampy slab is visible. Follow the climber's trail to the boulders, and talus hop uphill to reach the more popular section section of the rock. The lower section is a short walk from the parking area.

Pretty easy for 5.9 - this is a good lead for those breaking into 9....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
