Description 

A low-angle slab and popular spot for novice climbers. The east-end has a fair amount of easy and moderate routes with adequate protection and a good selection of rests. Mostly cracks with a sprinkle of bolted and mixed routes.

Descent: A large amount of east-side climbing requires you build you our anchor. If this is the case, you can use the rap anchor on top of Pure Pleasures or simply down-climb the 5.5 Summit Route to the north.

Morning sun / Afternoon Shade


Getting There 

Continue past Parking Lot Rock towards the left/north side. Continue down the trail, stay left at the fork and head down and across the creek bed until it breaks up and left, leaning east towards the backside of Window Rock.

Destroy all Planets 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a ID : City of Rocks : ... : Window Rock - East
Named after an old Martian movie, a pretty nice route. Slabby, well protected crux down low into a nice, though somwhat, flaring crack. When the crack gets funky, run it out to the prominent horizontal for some gear, then wander to the top on dishes. Fun long pitch...a little spicy....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
