Description Suggest change

This deserted hill is located right off of Mission Road. No obvious trails have been established, making hiking somewhat of a pain. It is almost always sunny, but trees near the climbing locations provide plenty of shade between attempts. Although there is plenty of potential for this undeveloped area, much of the rock on the hill is pure choss, and the hill itself is almost entirely unexplored. Only a few FA's have been set, and a large granite wall roughly 50 feet long and ranging from 10 to 25 feet high provides many hopeful bouldering problems.

Getting There Suggest change

From the 57 Freeway, exit at Temple Ave and head East. Take the first light going left onto Mission Blvd, following the road for just a minute until you reach Sorrento Dr. Turn left onto Sorrento Dr and park along the street. A gate says Road End, but directly to the left is a small hill leading behind the housing complex named Via Moreno. Take the cement walkway behind the housing to the opening next to the road. This is where you turn left, making your way up the hill side. The climbable rock is within eyesight, located with a patch of trees, roughly a third of the way up the hill.
