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.

This is one of the best climbs in the area. The climb is located to the right of the obvious fist sized crack. It goes directly up the center of the smooth white slab. There are no bolts on the face so you will have to set a toprope (or free solo). The climbing is easier then it looks. You just have to keep an eye out for the small edges that popup right when you need them to. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
