  • Description 

    The two routes Eric describes in Desert Rock 1 are located on the east side of this long formation. They both climb to the higher summit and begin on the opposite side of the road when driving by. This summit has probably seen less then 15 ascents, so don't expect to pick up a date here.

    Getting There 

    Mar Hotel is past Park Ave and past the La Sal Viewpoint to the east of the road just after the road turns to the north. It is the only large landform to the south of The Organ.
