The east face of Lost Orbit Rock is taller, steeper and less broken in appearances than the west face, and is home to a fun and varied collection of routes from 5.7-5.12a in difficulty. The majority of routes here are sport climbs, but a few quality trad lines do exist.
If coming from the north and the vicinty of Coyote Crag hike west past Camp Rock and pick up a well-worn trail that leads south through the woods. When the trail splits head left and continue southeast a short distance until the northwest corner of the formation comes into view. Allow 5-10 for the approach.
