Potter's Point is at the top of Gibraltar Road right where the road T's off to become East Camino Cielo. The area has tons of boulders around and even some bolted sport routes on the Caveman boulder. As with all places in the Santa Barbara area, a lot of the rock here is chossy, but a good amount of it is not. The boulder problems here that are not chossy are extremely fun. There are a good amount of overhanging and vertical problems, generally with cool edges to sloping top-outs. The rock here is very coarse. Expect your hands to be raw by the end of the day.
Getting There [Edit]
Drive up Gibraltar Road and park on the left side of the road about 100 feet before the road T's off to East Camino Cielo. Potter's Point is at the top of the large hill to the left of the road. Scramble up the embankment and find the obvious trail to the top. After around fifteen minutes of hiking, you will have reached the boulders.
