Current San Diego County Advisories Details

The Climb

The Starface rock has three recorded routes that run right, center and left up a very nice slice of rock. All face climbs, the use of delicate footwork both edging and smearing is all that is required. The leftmost route is the hardest at 5.11+, with the rightmost route being 5.11a. Great rock

Location

Downhill (300ft+/-) and a bit difficult to find, this rock is found taking the trail past the Big Horn rock, generally southwest. All of the routes face the south, so the approaching climber will only get a glimpse of the top of the rock, which has a couple of bolts. Below and behind the Starface, is a big wavelike rock, that sometimes is a bit easier to see. It has a bolt also.

The best pure slab climbing I've run across at Woodson. Both the left-most and right-most routes are fantastic. Directions update: just past Big Horn the trail splits in two - take the right hand trail (going West). Follow it for 100 yards to the back of Starface. Jan 21, 2017
