The off-end corner of Parking Lot Rock, this crag again, has a handful of classics. The shadiest part of the crag, the NE end of Parking Lot Rock has a prime mixture of style and difficulty. With a majority of the routes being in the three star range, the quality lines will be obvious, you won't be disappointed.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the parking lot towards the north (left) end of the formation. The NE routes start immediately after you round the sharp arete.

First climbed by Dave Bingham in 1984 with only three bolts!! The route was retro-bolted in 1988. Begin by climbing a large juniper then stepping on to a thin technical face. Make a difficult move to a layback (crux) which gains a very thin insecure crack. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
