Description

Old Stone Face offers some interesting, out of the way climbing near the Cabrillo summit. There are 3 routes, all in the 5.11 range. One of the routes, Nasal Drip, can be led with trad gear. Anchors on top are in good shape. To access for top roping, walk around the back and climb (or free solo!) TommyHawk (5.6?). The views and out of the way location make this a must if you're looking for something new to try.

Getting There

Hike past all the tourists at Rockland and El Dorado and work your way to just before the summit on the main trail. When Old Stone Face is directly on your left, cut over. If you find yourself bashing through the brush, you cut over too early. Wear long pants, there's a bit of poison oak!
