The Gun Club Rock Climbing
View of the small Gun Club canyon from the parking...
The Gun Club is a small canyon with routes lining both sides. The majority of the routes are relatively short (40 ft), but the short approach and quality of the routes make this a great crag for an evening outing, or an all-day climbfest.
The south wall (north facing) gets shade from mid-morning onwards, while the north wall (south facing) gets sun for most of the day. The rock here is sharp, and requires careful technique as well as some callouses. =)
This approach is AWESOME; One of the easiest at La Madre! Take the 215 beltway to the West Cheyenne Ave. exit. Head west on Cheyenne past a small strip mall with a Chevron sign. The road curves to the right (north) and eventually intersects Alexander. BEFORE intersecting Alexander there is a dirt road heading west (left) toward the base of the escarpment. Follow this dirt road to an obvious parking area. You should see parallel canyon walls of The Gun Club to the West. Take the five-minute hike following the wash up the canyon to the base of the cliffs.
