Description

This is the large , slabby cliff at the east end of the town of El Portal.
This area lies outside the park entrance.
Several moderate routes are found here and it can be a nice escape from the Valley on cold days.

Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection Details

Getting There

Park in a turn out below the cliff.

Please be very careful on the approach to not knock rocks into the road. It is very loose so be extra careful and watch your feet.

Do not approach this cliff by scrambling directly up the drainage. The approach follows a faint climber's trail. From the road, start up the trail on the left side of the drainage. Follow this as it switchbacks to the base of the slab.

Please be very carefull on the approach to not knock rocks into the road. It is very loose so be extra careful and watch your feet. Also start up on the left side now.

Do not approach this cliff by scrambling directly up the drainage. The approach follows a faint climber's trail. From the road, start up the trail on the right side of the drainage. Within the first 50ft, cross the drainage and gain the trail on the left side. Follow this as it switchbacks to the base of the slab. Jan 13, 2010
