Description

This hilly area along the bend on Leon road has the largest amount of developed boulders. Although the difficulty range is mostly V0-V4, there are more difficult ascents for stronger climbers that haven't been put up. Also a few fun top rope routes, aide routes, and one sport slab. 

Getting There

Head east on Newport Road in Menifee, will turn into Domenigoni Parkway. Turn right (south) onto Leon -
The dirt access road, Lion's Den . Location will be just after the bend on your right (northern side). Can't miss it - if you hit Holland you've gone too far.
