I'm a minnesotan headed to the Morro Bay area for a vacation in about a month. I would really like to get some climbing in with my girlfriend and brother. We would be top roping. Where are some great places to top rope preferably with some good views. We do have a car to drive but don't want to drive much over an hour. I have a full rack so protection is no issue.

Here is the closest toproping to Morro Bay, at either Rockland or Park Ridge Rock, which are formations at Cabrillo Peaks (the view of the estuary is superb):

For longer routes and, in my opinion, better climbing, try Cracked Wall at Bishop Peak. This is in San Luis Obispo, which is about twenty minutes from Morro Bay:

I'll step in and verify and back what frank said.  Spot on info. I grew up in morro bay and both spots are awesome.

While I would argue the word awesome, it is fun climbing at Cabrillo. Pacific Ocean at your back.
