Description

Shady in the afternoon and great venue for after work climbing especially when its hot elsewhere.

Sandstone, with a variety of crack and face routes (usually a combo of each). Many variations possible. Over a dozen routes on the small, compact crag.

Very short approach. Some helpful trail work (some real effort!) in progress. Nice flat staging area at the base could easily accomodate a small group or two.

Small amount of parking at the head of the approach trail. Be sure to pull completely off the road (more room on the downhill side from the trail location).

Getting There

PCH then head north on Sunset BLVD. At the first traffic light, Palisades, turn left. At around 1.5 miles the crag is barely visible on the left, poking out over the top of the trees near the base.
