DescriptionTick Rock is an "urban crag" situated smack in the middle of the upscale Pacific Palisades community, between Santa Monica and Malibu. The rock is heavily fractured and featured fine grained sandstone. The rock and the routes are more reminiscent of the granite of Riverside Quarry or Big Rock then the usual sandstone of Southern California.
The routes at Tick Rock are in the shade in the early morning and the afternoon, making it perfect for half day outings. There are seventeen documented routes and variations.
A steep trail leads up and over a small hill to the base, making for a short ten minute approach. Jack Marshall, Doniel Drazin, Steve Edwards, Louie Anderson, and Jeff Constine contributed to route development.
Shady after 2:30 p.m. Cool all summer! High-strength sandstone.
