Description

Folks have climbed here since time immemorial. Most climbers rope up in this shaded riparian cragging destination, but undoubtedly bouldering occurred between leads.

Getting There

101 to Montecito, then San Ysidro exit. Right on East Valley Road to Park Lane, and then a left on Mountain Drive. After a short bit on Mountain Drive, park and take the trail leading through peoples' back yards to a fire road. Check out the GPS location for help. Head up the fire road for 5 minutes and then take a left right before the gate. Cross the stream and you'll be at the base.

Photos

Alexander seemed a bit busy to add photos, so I snapped a couple. I tried to match the pictures up with the problems/descriptions, but may not be 100% correct. Let me know if there's anything is wrong.

Not sure on the FA status on anything here, as everything listed is pretty much directly off the trail.

The stone in the area can be pretty good due to water washing, but it is by no means 'concentrated'. There are a few quality problems scattered throughout the canyon, and the setting is nice (shaded, and the creek flows nicely). Reminds me of a very spread out Skofield Park.

Definitely recommend a shoe and chalkbag hike (sans crashpad) on first visit to get the lay of the land. Then decide if it's worth coming back. Feb 4, 2013
