?? MORE INFO >>>


This cliff is on Hwy 101 to the right just before the exit to Moonstone; it has some nice routes. The south side's traffic noise is not as loud. I recall us naming these routes numerically, although which is Route #1, #2, etc., I couldn't say . . .

Getting There 

Walk up from the parking lot & on-ramp, scurry discreetly across 101 and drop into the nook between the highway and the boulder by the cliff.

How is access currently? Last I heard, this place was off limits due to a homeowner nearby.

Something that Paul Humphrey had posted on Supertopo...


"A bitter old lady claims to own the rock. According to survey reports, the freeway face is on Cal-Trans right of way. most of the rest is on timber company land. She owns a little piece / the top and is VERY GOOD at harrassing climbers and bugging the cops by calling them all the time.

One day she will die. We have been saying that for so long, she must be immortal or something. She spraypainted no climbing on the base of the rock, sent me and other guide authors threatening lawyer letters, etc. For no legal reason, we checked.

It's nonscence. Her ace in the hole is the cops don't even want to deal with her. I have been climbing there, had the cops stop, explain the situation to them. They roll their eyes and ask us to just leave today because they are sick of hearing from her. If you are a little old lady and a bitch I guess you can get away with chasing everyone away.

Climb there if you want. Be nice if harrassed by the cops, they really don't care. It's her."
