Description

Just 3 minutes from San Pedro Vista means the occasional visitor on the trail above as well as people watching you from the overlook if you are on a route visible from the overlook. Not very user friendly as these rocks protrude from a very steep hillside. If your water bottle gets started you may never see it again. Like Sky Valley only worse. You also might have to hike up the hill to get to the other side as going down and around is a real pain in the butt. Good rock with three sides that face North, South and West. Steep rock tends to be free of lichen but the lower angle stuff can be fuzzy on the north and west sides.

Getting There

From the the down road end of San Pedro Vista Overlook take a trail up the hill for two minutes. As you crest the ridge you will see Mojo Wall. When you get to the rocks in another minute you will be at the point where the spine of the Mojo wall meets the hill side. Drop down on the left for to reach Tradical Mystery Tour or go a little farther and drop down to reach Branching Out Crag and the west and north face routes.

Thanks for the input Charles. I only saw the East Face of Branching Out so the rest is really a mystery. Updated. Nov 4, 2012

John, I've been here a couple times and can clarify that "Out on a Limb" and "Branching Out/Lipshitz start and basically climb the NE face of Branching Out crag (rather than Mojo). This is well down and around the corner from Corination and Rack Your Brian.

Also, "Treehuggers Mojo," despite the name, is on the North face of Branching out, and "Swinging from the Upper Limbs" is the next climb to its left. As far as I could tell, you can't scramble from these climbs around to "Branching Out" etc. You have to go back up over the saddle.

I'm sure EFR could clear it all up. Nov 4, 2012
