Description

Excellent moderate sport routes. Zero Approach--belay from the hood of the car! Only enough climbing for a half-day but still worth the drive. This site offers an excellent escape from the usual weekend crowds at Gibraltar. The routes are all on typical (i.e. soft) Central Coast sandstone.

Perhaps the single best perk is the outstanding view into Los Padres, to the north.

Weather / Climbing Season

The site faces north making the site an ice box in the winter. Just beyond the reach of coastal cooling, the site can be sweltering in the summer. Consider Crag Full of Dynamite to be a mostly Spring/Fall crag.

Getting There

From Gibraltar Rock, drive uphill on Gibraltar Road for about five minutes. Turn Right on Camino Cielo and drive for approximately 6 miles (about ten minutes). The crag overlooks the road on the right hand side.
