Gibraltar Rock Rock Climbing
Beautiful views and BIG exposure--Mike Toft climbs...
This is the main chunk of rock you see on the left (on the downhill side) as you drive up Gibraltar road. On the south-east side are a few easy routes which are frequently toproped, and on south and south-west sides there are a good handful of quality routes ranging from 5.8-5.12+.
On the west side are trails to the bottom and top of the rock.

A short section of steep hand jamming gives way to moderate (5.6) face climbing. Certainly the steepest jams within 100 miles. When toproping, avoid falling early in the roof or potentially swing into the spike. Approach: Hike down to the bottom of the main block and curve around towards the west slightly. You'll know it when you see it. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
