About New Jack City:

More than 350 sport climbs for climbers of all abilities (5.6-5.13d) scattered across a prehistoric-looking landscape near Barstow. Located in the high desert, the climbing season runs fall through spring and although winter days can be cold they often are climbable and pleasant in the sun . The rock is an unusual metamorphic rock of volcanic origin which has weathered into an amazing array of formations offering a variety of holds - edges, crimps, jugs, pockets, huecos and underclings. The climbing is typically steep and varied and requires both strength as well as technique to succeed.
