Description

A nice little cragging area located on the flanks of Iron Mountain overlooking Ramona. Mostly short sport routes in the 5.10 to 5.11 range but longer and more moderate routes do exist. Typical compact San Diego granite. Some routes require a cam so bring a small rack up to 3".

The crag is mostly South and East facing so it will recieve morning sun and lots of it.

Just past the trail junction with the overlook keep heading North toward the crag. It will be in view at this time.

With regards to Sport Wall...

This site shows Ambergris as second line from right, AND Velociraptor as second line from right. I think Velociraptor goes up and LEFT. Ambergris goes up and RIGHT with same start but different anchors. If that is correct, it should be changed on here. Anyone familiar with these two routes?

Also, I saw 3 bolts on left side of that block sticking out on the right side of the wall. I think that is Sport Me?? a newish route. Then to the right is Spiral Stigmatic?

We need some FA guys to clear this up probably. Jan 23, 2013
