While there was no climbing on this trip we did get to see the City in a whole new perspective!
The breadloaves has one large group site right next to the bathrooms and parking and numerous dispersed tent sites, some with long approaches so check the map on the Gov website!
The breadloaves are thoroughly catalogued on the mountain project website but some classic to try are Bloody Fingers and Carol's Crack. There is e ough climbing at the Breadloaves alone for a couple weeks of entertainment but the fantastic Morning Glory Spire is nearby as well along with other smaller walls
We camped here in October during an unseasonably hot few days. We brought a camper and just parked it at the parking lot….I slept in it with my little ones….the rest of the group set up tents and hammocks down at the actual campsite which is a short distance downhill. If you have a ton to pack…you may not like this site. It has great shade for City of Rocks. It was such a great location for climbing and mountain biking. A trail started right at the parking lot, which is where the bathroom is too. We hope to go again!
We camped at site 58 that can be accessed from the parking lot for the Breadloaves group site. Withing 100' of the site are ~20 routes and one of the mega classics of the City, Bloody Fingers on the east side of the loaves.
The site is a little bit of a walk from the parking lot so bring something to haul your stuff in. The walls nearby face east and provide an excellent opportunity for some night or moonlight climbing. It also provides a good respite from the wind even if tents in nearby sites are getting blown around and has the best shade in the area!
