This sun lit outcropping can be seen from the I-15 when driving through Rancho Bernardo. From the trailhead on Pablado it takes about 20 minute stroll to get to the base. At about the 6th interpretive sign (posted on rocks pertaining to wood rats and squirrels) take left on faint trail, traversing over to the pole line road. Go right on the road/trail until an inobvious trail(s) on the left can lead up steep terrain to the rocks.
Several toprope problems and a few bolted leads were established a couple decades ago. I don't remember any of the names or FA info, so if somebody has any info let me know!
Exit off of I-15 at Pomerado Road and at the light take a left (north or southbound makes no difference). Take this road, West Bernardo Drive for about 2-3 miles until reaching the intersection of Duenda Road where one will take a right turn. Continue straight through several stop signs through the neighborhood until the road turns into Pablado. The trailhead for the open space is on Pablado just before Moon Song Road. Roadside parking
Mountain Project's determination of some of the classic, most popular, highest rated routes for West Bernardo Hills:
Checked out WBH and I thought the hike and view was really nice. As for the climbing, if you live in the area or are looking to check out something new in the area then it is something to do. There were a handfull of climbs (most being for rope or spooky highballs), and the rock was good quality. None the less the routes that are put up are good lines.
