A guy named Louie Anderson put this together over at westcoastbouldering.com.
Pretty much a rundown of this area.

To the intrepid few that choose to venture into this area for the many boulders that dot the hillsides and valley, be forewarned that this is a multi-use open space, which is popular with recreational firearm enthusiasts. I have personally been walking down one of the many dirt roads to approach mindless people shooting in my general direction (no backdrop for the bullets). The County of Riverside does not patrol this area unless they are called upon, so it can be a shooting gallery sometimes.
Use your best judgement if you venture out to this area.

|I'm all about exploring and trying to find new areas, I love going to odd places even if the climbing isn't 5 star but seriously don't waste your time here. The first 3 boulders have a few climbs that are all easy and there is a hard climb at the top of the hill but every boulder we walked to was too short and polished, i'm not trying to discourage but just trying to give an honest opinion. I wish someone warned me before wasting gas money and felt bad that my friend dented his car trying to get out there (bring a car with good clearance or a shovel and 2x6's). not to mention if you don't live in the area you would have to drive past much better climbing to get there. if you are driving over the ortegas just stop at el cariso if you are taking the 15 just go to the quarry instead. We walked about 2 miles and found nothing but we could see potential in the distance. If you really must climb here bring motorcycles or mountain bikes to get to the good stuff (if there is any)...|
