Description

A small canyon filled with grass and palm trees down near the border in Otay mesa contains some decent if somewhat short sport climbing on interesting featured metamorphic rock. Most of the good climbing faces north, and the trees offer shade, making this area climbable on all but the hottest days.

Getting There

From highway 805 go east on Olympic Parkway. Continue for 6.5m. Turn left on Wueste Rd. and continue till you hit Otay Lakes County Park. Park inside for a fee or park right outside in the shoulder. Make your way through the county park and to the trails in the back. Head south and down into the canyon. You'll see the face after 15 minutes or so of downhill hiking. Hike right and down into the canyon. once you hit the riverbed turn left towards the pipe to find the climbing.
