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 5 go east on 905. Continue east on Otay Mesa Road. Turn left on Alta Rd and drive 2 miles, passing a prison, to an unmarked dirt rd on left with a concrete culvert. Go north on this rough dirt rd. At a fork near a fenced reservoir, bear right and follow this rd til it ends above a canyon. Hike left and down into the canyon to find the climbing.
