Joe Brown Boulder, Mt. Rubidoux


A nice section of rock facing North West. Even in the heat of the summer the climbing is usually good until around midday. In the winter the sunny face is a good place to be.

It is easy to set up top ropes for all the climbs (bring some slings and rocks to place over the headless bolts at the top).

Getting There 

Park at the San Andreas / Glenwood parking area. Head up the paved road passed the gate. Follow the road / path as it winds its way up the hill. The road heads North, then South and finally swings back North near the crest of the hill. Follow the road until you cross over a small bridge. The cliff lies on the hillside (NE) above you. You can either fight your way through bushes directly from the path, or take a more leisurely stroll around the back from the upper parking lot at the top of the hill.

A good climb. Start below and to the left of the obvious 'eye' in the rock. Make some hard moves up and along a rail until you have the eye by the socket. Don't hang around too long before heading up onto easier ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
