Another popular spot, the east side of Parking Lot Rock is pretty good. More slab-oriented than its opposite, technique and foot work will be a must. Routes here range from 5.8 to 5.11, with the main concentration being in the 5.10 range. Get your slab on!

Another tall crag, a 60 meter rope will work for most, however a 70m rope will be more convienient.

Morning sun / afternoon shade.

Getting There 

From the main parking lot, follow the trail either left or right to reach the east side of the crag. Continue along the trail that skirts closest to the formation.

This is the all-bolted line near the south end of the east face. The line on this route meanders, so be relaxed as to your interpretation of the line. Don't go straight from 1 bolt to the next. The first 2 bolts require a little leftward zagging, and then you traverse right under the roof band. Get on top of the roof band and traverse left. Finally pick your smear, and head on up to the chains. A smearing climb amidst a sea of edging. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
