Description

Located 5 minutes from the ocean, this 150 foot tall sandstone crag has a small section of medium quality rock with three bolted sport climbs from 5.10d to 5.12b/c. Climb here only after the weather has been dry for several days. Best season is Fall or Spring, Summer can be pretty hot as it faces due west (nice ocean and canyon views).

All bolts are newer 5/8 x 5" 5 piece Rawls. There is also evidence of some old aid climbing (bolts) dating to the 1960s.

Holds can be very sandy if no one has climbed them for a while. Kinda the place you would only visit if you lived nearby and had nothing better to do!

If it is any consolation, even though access is more involved than Temple Rock, the climbing is far better -- though that isn't saying as much as it sounds.

Getting There

From PCH, take Thalia east (inland) and keep right where the road "Ts." You are now on Temple Hills Drive. Follow Temple Hills Drive uphill for about 1 mile. Park on the right, just before a water tank, open area found on your right. If you reach Dorn street, you went too far. The water tank is located about 4 houses downhill from Dorn. A trail leads to the right above water tank south to bench. From here, a rough trail proceeds south to base of crag.
