Description

A short hike past the popular Seven Falls area. Touts some of Santa Barbara's most exciting sport climbs on interesting rock. The climbing tends to be dead-vertical to overhanging and on the difficult side (5.11 to 5.12). Most of the routes are in the shade all day so climbing is great year-round (it can even get quite cold in the winter).

Getting There

Hike up Tunnel Trail and head towards the junction of Inspiration Point. Once you reach Mission Creek and the junction for Inspiration Point, hike up Mission Creek till you reach some relatively easy bouldering/scrambling. Follow the creek, and just as you are about to reach the seven falls area, on the left side, there will be a steep path, with a questionable fixed rope, which will take you up the ridge line and then back down. The crag is on your right and has a large carving from the early 1900's at its base. Overall, the hike takes about 30-40 minutes.
