DescriptionA line of what is mostly a SoCal anomally, aka Limestone. While there aren't any caves, the rock is featured with feldspar bands, blocky edges, and pockets. This area is off the beaten path, though easy to get to, and does not see a lot of traffic due to it's relative proximity to the nearby New Jack City. For those who don't like crowds, I would suggest stopping by to check the place out.
One of the, if not the, warmest area in the general So Cal High Desert area surrounding Barstow / Victorville. The cliff faces due south. It can be windy, but on cold days the areas is perfect.
Getting ThereDrive east on Hwy 18 from Victorville, turn left onto Rabbit Springs Rd., turn left onto Kendall Rd., which immediately turns into Cove Rd., follow this till a "Y" and make a right hand turn. Follow the road till it curves left and you will see a dirt road heading straight towards a large dirt hill. Take the right fork onto the dirt road and drive straight to a parking area at the base of the hill. The climbing area is up on the hill directly above the limestone mine, about a 10 minute walk.
