Description 

This area features some great top ropes and even a few single pitch aid lines. A few of the climbs are really fun and have excellent rock quality. Some of the longest climbs in all of Mount Rubidoux are found here. About 50 feet high. The face gets morning shade, but is in the sun all afternoon.

Getting There 

Directly under the big cross on the west side. Just follow the road north from The Island. The rock will be up and to your right.

Another short Rubidoux treat! Either jam and walk it up or lieback it. The bottom inside of the crack is featured enough to hook your tips in addition to whatever jam you get; for me it's just fingers, but would be tight hands for someone with smaller hands...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
