Mount Olympus is one of several crags in the Santa Monica Mountains that feature a volcanic tuff or Brecchia containing cobbles that protrude from the surface to provide amazing hand and foot holds. The routes of Mt.Olympus may be a bit intimidating at first, but many of the cobbles have positive tops or hidden holds between the cobbles.
From the Sandstone Peak parking area, follow the steep fire road for 0.3 miles until you reach the Mishe Mokwa connector trail on your right. Continue on the main fire road to Sandstone Peak. From here continue on the fire road around a sharp left turn and a steep downhill section. Continue straight ahead on the fire road until the obvious cobbled tower can be seen downhill and left of the fire road. This is Mt. Olympus.
