Why is OC on here for climbing? There really isn't any. Corona Del Mar is dirty with dead sea gulls and diapers all the time, Turtle Rock is illegal to climb, and Ortega is quite forgettable. The worse thing for me is that I moved here from the Gunks for med school!
Living in the OC isn't so bad if you don't mind driving a little to go climbing (Jtree, Tahquitz/Suicide, and San Deigo County), but as far as climbing in OC is concerned it's dry.
If anyone knows of some areas around here that I haven't been to, drop me a line.
