This is one of the most unique properties we've listed. It sits atop the peak of this hill with 360 degree views of the valley. Just north is New Jack City, a climbers paradise! According to RockClimbing.com, "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."
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) operates Sawtooth Canyon 2 miles southeast of the property. Currently, it is free to camp at the canyon on any of the 13 campsites and the facility provides picnic tables and fire rings.
