Warning Access Issue: Closed to climbing, Feb 1 - Aug 31 for nesting peregrine falcons. DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

A sunny, exposed SW facing crag with very good quality rock. Good choice for a first time lead. Most routes are well bolted. There are occasional access issues with nesting peregrine falcons, but a call or email to the Coronado National Forest will give current info on possible closures - the wall is usually open even during the dates listed above. 

Getting There Suggest change

 Head up the highway past San Pedro Vista overlook. SPV is about a mile past Rose Canyon Lake. You can see Barnum Rock as you make the sweeping left hand turn just past SPV. Park at the paved pullout on the left. Hike up the road on the right side. about a hundred yards up a curb will begin and not much farther up the road you'll find a metal storm drain. Turn right up a faint trail, which is pretty obvious. A short not too steep ascent brings you to the base of the crag at the start of Gumbercules. Traverse left and up through a notch in the rocks to find the original Gumby Wall routes. Approach time 5-10 mins.
