Port Royal

California > Los Angeles Basin > Angeles Nationa… > Texas Canyon


Port Royal was a haven for the Pirates and Buccaneers of the 17th century Spanish Main. This outcrop hosts steep pocketed and featured sport routes, albeit "crunchy" due to lack of traffic. While relatively short and thuggish to access Port Royal is an excellent summer destination or modern day haven from the hustle and crowds in the First Corridor, as it is shady most of the day, in a grassy glade.

[Hide Comment] Is this the farthest route on the wall? I believe I climbed this today but can't find a definitive answer.. I believe there were four or five total bolted lines on this wall. Nov 8, 2015

[Hide Comment] Sean...this is a new area with only two routes on the wall. A 5.8+ and a 5.10d.

Sorry for any consternation fellas, but this nice, shady, grassy location is off the beaten path and the location will require some exploration on your part, as to preserve its serene charm away from the sport climbing masses. Good luck and happy hunting. Nov 8, 2015

[Hide Comment] Where is this? The location comments aren't enough to find it. Thank you for any help. Aug 11, 2016
