Description 

Voodoo Garden is a new area north of the central pinnacles, mostly developed by Brad Singer and members of the Rim of the World Climbing Club in the summer of 2007, although there were a few pre-existing routes put up by Chris Miller. It is a collection of walls and large blocks, with several moderate to advanced sport routes, and some interesting cracks. At the top of the hill, Katrina Wall dominates the formation and is easily seen from the road approaching the north parking lot for the central pinnacles. Other walls of note are the east-facing One-Eyed Cat Wall which lies just to the southwest of Katrina Wall and the south-facing Peyronie's Wall.

Getting There 

To find the Voodoo Garden, walk back along the road that brought you to the north parking lot, about 1/4 of a mile. You will see Voodoo Garden on the hillside to your left, just after walking past the first hill on your left. Follow along the left (south) side of the stream bed and cross to the north as you get close to the rocks. Peyronie’s is the short wall straight ahead, Other formations are farther up the hill to the left and require some scrambling. Allow ten minutes to hike from the north parking lot.

Bourbon Street 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Katrina Wall
Starts about five feet right of When the Levee Breaks. Work up and right to a bulge. Pull the crux on solid holds and continue up and right. Near the top of a right-slanting crack head straight up through a secondary crux to reach the anchor. While Bourbon Street feels a little easy for the grade, it incorporates a variety of technique; this one is fun all the way to the top! Rappel to descend....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
