Description

A small section of beautiful water polished sandstone boulders directly adjacent to Malibu Canyon Rd. Most boulder landings have a dry flat landing. Trails involve hopping from stone to stone along the creek. Trails are also heavily vegetated, be aware there is a high concentration of poison oak. Please be respectful and do not climb on sandstone for at least five days from rainfall. Pack in & out. *Page needs contributors for boulder problem name/locations*

Getting There

When exiting Las Virgines on the 101, drive south on Las Virgenes Rd. Continue to Malibu Canyon Rd for 5.6 mi.
Alternative, is a more scenic drive involves on the PCH (CA-1) highway and turn into Malibu Canyon Road.
Parking is illegal along the road, but there is a pull out daily parking lot ~0.4mi north of the climb area.
Walk along side the road, and there are several drop down sections from the road that is not too obvious. Be careful of the approach down to the creek from the road, steep loose gravel.
