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.

Jochen just past the crux, finishing Central Park.

Central Park 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CA : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Bowery Rock
This line is in the middle of the right side of Bowery Rock and is divided by a couple ledges into three sections. Start on the slab above a large, flat rock. Going straight up past the bolt, without using the right edge of the slab, yields a more challenging start at about 5.10a. Using the right edge, although more natural, downgrades this section to about 5.8. Continue up the middle section using side pulls and delicate footwork. Finish on the upper section with a crux on small crimps and...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

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