Description

Small set of ~55 ft foot cliffs along the foot trail of Van Nattas Dam of Sixmile Creek.
This area is for rappelling only. Climbing on shale is very dangerous as pieces break often and can fall on you or someone below. Please wear a helmet even as you repel. There is a very short trail that follows the base of the cliffs for scouting. The cliffside has three main shale cliffs, with 2 steep dirt landslide-y hills separating them. There are trees on top of the cliff to build natural anchors. The trees on top are along a very steep hill so be very careful while setting up anchors as well. The middle cliff, Barrackuda, is the safest and best rappel in this area.

Getting There

Park on the south side of the Giles Street road bridge in the parking lot for the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve. Anyways, to get to the rappel site, cross the river and walk to the other side or the bridge. You should see the abandoned building along the side of the cliff. You are not going over that large cliff face seen from the bridge. That is private property. You should be on the left of the river in the bend. Anyways go up that short hill right next to the waterfall and you will be on top of the cliffs. There are trees along the trail to build natural anchors, but I would recommend following the trail down to the left and going below to scout out the cliffs first. It’s a VERY short (2 minutes) trail down the hill.
