Description

A nice, sunny cragging area with 2 main walls, the upper beach & lower beach. Great crack routes and, at the upper beach, a couple extremely nice sport routes on super hard rock. Very sunny. Stays warm pretty much all the time.

Getting There

Park at the Mystic trailhead on Chapel Road. Approach as for the Planetarium, but stay on the trail a little past the Planetarium turn-off until you reach an obvious wash. Turn right (roughly west) and hike/slog up the steep drainage to gain the cliffs directly above The Planetarium.

I found a Women's sports watch at the base of the upper beach-near moon juice. If you lost it, email me back with what type of watch you lost and I will return it to you.

Thanks,

what the descriptions of the beach areas fail to mention is how hard this approach really is...especially for the upper beach areas. lots of loose rock, dirt and steep hiking. great climbing, dont get me wrong but the approach can kill your appetite for hard climbing. Apr 13, 2013
