Very undeveloped area directly next to Tenaja Waterfall. Only a handful of routes, mostly above 5.10.

Getting There 

The approach is about 1hr from the I-15 freeway. Exit the I-15 on Clinton Keith Road and head west to the town of Tenaja. Take a right on Tenaja road, then another right on Cleveland Forest Road. Another 5 miles in is the parking area for the Tenaja Falls trail, which is well marked. A quick .7 mile hike (20 minutes) gains the falls and the top of the climbs.

Climbing Season

For the Santa Ana Mountains area.
