Description

This great sport climbing area is characterized by powerful pocket climbing on severely overhanging rock. The climbs are very fingery and bouldery and well bolted on volcanic Brecchia, very similar to Malibu Creek, with pockets of all shapes, sizes, and depths. The routes are short, between 30 and 50 feet long, steep, and relatively sustained. There are a staggering number of link-ups possible. Boney Bluff is one of the best "training" crags in Southern California.

Getting There

From the Ventura Freeway (101) take Westlake Blvd for 7.2 miles until it's possible to turn right onto Mulholland Drive. After 0.4 miles turn right on Little Sycamore Canyon. Go 4.7 miles and park at the Backbone Trail/Sandstone Peak parking. Hike up the fire road to the Sandstone Peak summit. From here, follow the single-track trail straight ahead which is slightly faster then the fire road. Take a trail heading off left and parallel the creek for about 5 minutes until you pass a right-hand fork and an entrance sign for Point Mugu State Park. Shortly after the sign, you encounter another climber's trail leading up to the cliff.

As of today, 13 climbs are listed here, yet 41 (with little details) are listed on rockclimbing.com rockclimbing.com/routes/Nor…

I'm wondering does anyone know this crag super well that can add beta here? Are a good chunk of those 41 linkups? Jun 28, 2017
