Description 

This covers the handful of crags to the east of Lost Orbit Rock, and is the smallest area with the least amount of climbing.

Although on the short side, these crags offer fun and technical climbing in an out-of-the-way area. Routes to do here include Follow Your Dike (5.10b), Bearish (5.10c), Tongue Buckler (5.10c), A Wrinkle in Time (5.10d) and Welcome to Sky Valley (5.10d).

Getting There 

From the Lost Orbit Rock - East Face hike east, passing a seasonal stream, and then pick up a well-worn trail heading north. The crags, the largest on the hillside, are readily visible to the right (east). Plan on a 5 minute walk from Lost Orbit Rock, a 10 minute walk from the vicinity of Parking Lot Rock and a 15 minute walk from the upper parking area.

Bullish 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CA : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Delancey Rock
On the far right end of Delancey Rock, use a lieback flake to reach a small roof. Pull the roof and continue up and left on nice plates. Although this line is bolted it could just as well be led on gear. The roof is not as intimidating as it may look and my friends and I all thought the route went at 5.8. I think it has cleaned up a bit in the lower section, making the climb easier than on the first ascent.As a variation, you can start on the same flake at the bottom, but follow the crack up...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Lots of good steep, technical face climbs in the 5.10 range here - different from Central Pinnacles.
