Short sport routes on fun rock, divided into three areas:
Little Lebowski Urban Achievers Crag has moderate routes (6-10s) facing both north and south.
The Amphitheater is a collection of hard face climbing (11-13s) in a small canyon.
Land of the Lost (10-12s) is further down hill from the Amphitheater.
Drive up the 154 to West Camino Cielo. After 2 miles on West Camino Cielo, a faint trail can be seen going down through a meadow towards the ocean. The turnout is obvious. Look for a long narrow turnout and other climber cars after a sharp right turn in the road.
Once you've found the trail, head down and right for ~15 minutes. The trail is more of a tunnel through a canopy of trees and if you're tall with a backpack on, its not fun.
Eventually, the trail will end at a rock wall. Go slightly left and there will be a fallen tree which assists in scrambling over the rocks. Once you are on top of the rock wall, stop and have a look around, this is where you figure out the last bit of bushwacking. See the individual areas for the rest of the approach description.
