Description

The short, pumpy routes on the edgey volcanic rock here range from steep to slab. There are a few classic routes that should be considered relatively clean but for the most part expect choss and bring an helmet. The location itself is beautiful in its own way. Beautiful sunsets are year round and the Oxnard flood plain is visible from the anchors of most climbs.

While the area is technically a sport climbing destination, the rock quality is not good and loose blocks abound. Exercise caution when choosing which routes to lead. Nearly all routes can be approached from the ridge above and are easily top roped.

Conejo Boulders is located under *Santa Monica Mountains Bouldering.

Getting There

The approaches listed previously (parking from the end of Old Conejo, the RV home park) are all trespassing. Don't use them, there is a trailhead but it's about a 25 minute walk. From Hwy 101 in Newbury Park, exit Wendy Drive. Go west on Old Conejo Road, which parallels the freeway. Turn left on Reino then right on Lesser. Follow into the residential then turn left. Park before the fire hydrant and trailhead is tucked in between the houses to your left.

WEATHER/CLIMBING SEASON
Hot in summer, cool in winter. Spring and fall are downright nice. Waiting 48 hours after rainfall is generally the accepted practice here.
