Description

For decades, Point Mugu has been THE spot for area climbers to learn basic crack climbing technique. The little boulder by the highway is simply famous among Ventura- and some LA-County climbers...and as Steve Edwards said in the Santa Barbara/Ventura guidebook, “If you don’t confuse famous with good, you may not be disappointed.” Popular with travelers along PCH as well as with the locals, you can expect to share the site with other climbers.

Extraordinary sunsets and beautiful marine life add to the appeal. Curious tourists armed with cameras and abundant road noise are all part of the experience.

Getting There

From the North: Located on PCH (Hwy-1), just a few miles south of Point Mugu Naval Air Station (2.5 miles south of Las Posas Rd.), at the point where the Highway breaks out along the ocean.

From the South: Located 6 miles north of the LA/Ventura county line (marked conspicuously by the locally-famous Neptunes Net), just before the highway cuts inland away from the ocean.
