Fun area to climb, but some of the most bizarre top rope bolt placements I've ever seen.... May 28, 2010

Anybody have info on the 2 bolted routes on the rock just west of Zuma Rock? May 10, 2013
That's known as Zuma West. Left route is 10-, 5 bolts. Right route is 8+/9, 5 bolts. Both are good quality routes that don't seem to see a lot of traffic. Sep 9, 2013
