Center/Headwall Rock Climbing
The Center/Headwall is south-facing and receives sunlight most of the day. Temperatures may be a few degrees higher than El Cajon, so if climbing in the summer make sure to bring plenty of water.
The rock is granite and generally good; however, due to the number of climbs and pattern of development, rock fall from other climbers necessitates wearing a helmet.
The approach from the road is approximately 60 to 90 minutes with an elevation gain of about 1,800 feet.
