About Outer Outlet:

Outer Outlet is the larger of the two large namesake formations of the area, and the one furthest from Sylvan Lake. This rock has a great moderate, some nice cracks, and several serious leads. DIRECTIONS: Follow the Sylvan Lake trail around the lake and through the tunnel. When the trail forks after the tunnel, take a left, and then a right at the next trail. Follow this to the north as it goes away from Sylvan Lake to a field area. A trail switchbacks up the hill towards Middle Earth, and just behind you is Outer Outlet. It is very imposing and one of the larger rock formations in the Needles.
