Description

Mt. Gorgeous offers some of the longest routes at Malibu Creek State Park and has become one of the most popular destinations within the canyon. This area has a high concentration moderate climbs for the beginner to advanced level sport climber. This side of the canyon stays in the shade in the morning and due to the canopy of trees the base of routes receive shade beyond midday. A rack of 16 quickdraws, plus anchors, will be sufficient for climbing at Mt. Gorgeous. A couple long draws can help with rope drag on a few routes. Be aware that bees/wasps frequently inhabit the pockets on this wall.

Getting There

Find the 5.5 traverse. Follow the wall up and left into the canyon just after the traverse.
