The poorly named lower Gibraltar is actually up the road from the main wall. A little cliff with four moderate routes. South facing and secluded, a good place to go if Gibraltar is crowded and you have gumbies with you. There are two sets of anchors at the top and it is far easier to rappel to the bottom of the face.
Drive 50 yards past the main Gibraltar area and park in a turnout on the downhill side of the road. Scramble out to the point and then right (200 yards) to the top of the climbs. The approach should take less than 2 minutes.

One star doesn't seem like a lot, but hey, it's an OK little climb that would be four stars if the corner went on for more than 20 feet. The right most route in the obvious dihedral. A good line to show beginners something other than face climbing....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
