- Head up the CA-18 from San Bernardino (Waterman Ave. from the CA-210) toward Crestline. Continue east on CA-18 to Crest Park, about ½ mile past Rim of the World High School.
- Or take the CA-330 from CA-210 (CA-30) at Highland, towards Running Springs. Take CA-18 west toward Lake Arrowhead. Continue to Crest Park, about ¼ mile past the CA-173/Lake Arrowhead exit.
From this parking lot, walk west through the picnic area, heading slightly right to gain the paved fire road. This is also a private drive for a few homes in the area so please be respectful.
Follow the pavement as it curves downhill to the left. Head into the open lot on the left before reaching the homes. At the far side of the open space, find a trail and follow the cairns south along the ridge. The trail turns to the southwest at a hilltop and follows talus steeply down to the top of Scot Rock.
Pick an anchor and rap to the base of either wall. Be aware that this requires some exposed and unprotected easy scrambling. When rapping down the south face you will need to find the lower anchors; following the line of Highlander will require three raps.
- Allow about 20 minutes for the hike in, somewhat longer to hike the 500 foot elevation gain back to the car.
