Description

The Ghetto is one of the most popular walls in Malibu Creek State Park and offers the highest concentration of difficult steep sport climbing routes. The routes in The Ghetto climb out a series of caves on steep pocketed volcanic rock. While initially The Ghetto offered steep routes best suited for advanced climbers, more recent development has made the area attractive to leaders at all levels. Currently, The Ghetto and the adjacent area offers 30+ bolted sport routes from 5.9 - 5.14. The wall is in the shade in the morning and early afternoon.

It's called Ghetto Blaster. 13a/b I believe. It's 12d up to the good holds before the top. Then there is a V5 boulder problem to the mantle. Nov 9, 2009
