A quick google search revealed... If I had to guess this is the obvious dihedral seen from the south end on hwy1. If so, good choice. Although, it was a splitter finger crack in my dreams... youtube.com/watch?v=4UYlKiX…

And what's this about? From wikipedia "Hollister Peak is on private property but within certain days of the year the peak is open to the public to climb during holiday's and for Indian tribes for religious purposes" May 14, 2013

Yes, Morro Rock probably is a bunch of crappy rock. However, Hollister Peak is the premiere peak in the area and no access either. Oh well. Mar 29, 2004
