BETA PHOTO: South Horror Rock, featuring Lazy Day.
South Horror Rock, one of the closest rocks to the parking area, is home to a number of fun and challenging routes that due to a minimal approach often see traffic.
Some of the better climbs here include the fun crack of Lazy Day
(5.7), the balancy and slabby arete that's Garden Angel
(5.10a), Dog Day Afternoon

Easily reached via a good trail from the paved parking area.
