La Ola (The Wave) Rock Climbing
La Ola, as seen from the road.
This short wall is right at ground level and has an unmistakable "wave" breaking right at the top. Most of the climbs are relatively easy until reaching the wave.
The wall faces south but is protected from the sun until late in the day by huge wall surrounding it.
Near the end of the canyon, across from the tin-roofed picnic pavilion, on the left (east) side of the road.
