DescriptionThis small cliff is about 60' tall and 250' long, with climbs ranging from 35'-60' tall. There is currently 10 climbs on it, with some in the works, and with room for many more. Cliff is still in active development at this time. New routes will be going over the next year. Keep an eye on this page for info on them!
Cliff will hold about 30 climbs when done being developed. Same cliff band as Ozone and Farside/Dropzone, just further west. Similar style of climbing. Most of the cliff is in the direct sunlight, (faces south) and dries out very quickly due to sun and wind. It can be an excellent place to climb right after a rain storm when other cliffs are still wet. Excellent spot for dry winter days.
Getting TherePark at the west Ozone parking, and walk down the trail until you see a trail going down and cutting back to the west. Follow this trail for about 10 minutes to the cliff.
Be warned that there is poison oak growing along the trail at this time. Plans are in the works to build a good solid trail this fall. If you want to help with this (or help with new routes), please message me.
