Description Suggest change

**This area is  CLOSED to climbing to the general public and is restricted to military personnel use only.

This is the morro that sits on  Camp San Luis Obispo, visible as you head north on Highway 1 between SLO and Morro Bay. The climbing here is perhaps the best in the county. Overhanging dacite and long slabs with unique features abound. Unfortunately as of now it is restricted to military use only.

Cerro Romauldo, 1306', is one of the Nine Sisters or the Morros (which include Morro Rock, Cabrillo Peak, Black Hill, Hollister Peak, Cerro Romauldo, Chumash Peak, Bishop Peak - 1559', San Luis Peak, and Islay Hill) that are a chain of volcanic mountains of San Luis Obispo County of Central California. The rock type is primarily dactite.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive north from Highway 101 on Highway 1 (the road from 101 is Santa Rosa, becomes Highway 1 as you drive out of town). As you come down the hill and around the bend, the large "Camp San Luis Obispo" signs are your clue to turn left onto the base. Tell the friendly men in uniform your intent and receive their directions. Don't mess around while you're there: it may be a reserve base, but those guys carry guns, doncha know.
