Skofield Park Rock Climbing

A hand-full of small sandstone boulders are scattered throughout this very pleasant and scenic park. Each boulder has a few high quality moderate routes. What the park lacks in quantity it makes up for with quality. Very convenient and user friendly.
From the 101-Fwy, exit Mission Street. Head north, toward the mountains. Follow Mission Street past the Mission as it winds up toward the hills. Turn right on Foothill Drive (a.k.a. Hwy-192) and then left on Mission Canyon Road. Stay right at the Y. Make a hard right onto Los Canoas. Follow Los Canoas as it winds around the foothills. The entrance to Skofield Park is on the right, just beyond the Rattlesnake Canyon trailhead.

One of the best in SB. Also one of the most devious, subtle, and just plain ridiculously hard problems you may ever encounter. Begin with hands matched on improbable sloper, hook something (anything...) with your right heel, and conjure your way to the top. No spoilers...sorry....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

The Cracked Boulder is one of my favorite pieces of rock in the entire Santa Barbara area. The Fissure King is a must do!

This video shows the most ridiculous problem in Skofield Park; a la 'Sit There and Take it Like a Man' style. Crux is keeping your butt off the ground, but it's consistently pumpy throughout. Also on the boulder is the stand start w/ left & right exit, and the traverse to scoop and mantle from the left side of the boulder (punt).
On the split boulder just up from the Cracked boulder:
(warning: crappy, uneditted video)
Also wondering if anyone has any info on the problems on the 'Makeover Stone' The V1 on the frontside is super fun, but most of the other climbs I can't even make out (Tri-Hawk??)..
