DescriptionSome short moderate sport climbs and topropes in a beautiful pine forest setting with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the Channel Islands, Santa Barbara and Goleta. The rock is of decent quality (per SB), and generally contains a bit of lichen due to the lack of traffic.
The fantastic Caveman Boulder, with ***/**** sport routes from 5.11 to 5.13 is also located in this area, and is a must-visit spot for the "hard" sportster.
Getting ThereDriving up Gibraltar Rd from town, take a left at the Gibraltar Road/Camino Cielo "T" and park in a turnout on the left side of the road. Walk back DOWN Gibraltar Road about 100 feet, then take a trail up and to your right. The trail is actually in pretty good condition. Once you climb the small peak and enter a boulder field overlook, use the attached photo to figure out where the climbs are located. The trail continues into the boulderfield, but don't expect much of a trail to or between the individual routes. Some minor bushwhacking will ensue.
