Access Issue: New Access Difficulties Details
A new fence laced in razor wire has been erected on the far end of the dam where you used to hop over. Skirting around is a trivial matter, but I'm unsure how the message should be interpreted. There are no new signs indicating closures, and you can still hike over from Stumbling Blocks/Ghetto Wall. If anything the fence is going to have more of an effect on the hikers trying to do the loop than the climbers. On the plus side, I've never seen it so empty at this area.
Access Issue: New route or crag development is NOT permitted within Malibu Creek SP at this time. Do not improve trails or belay areas using materials brought from outside the park. Details
Starts just right of an arete on vertical terrain up to an alcove under a roof. A few big moves to get through that, a huge jug to rest on, and then sustained thin pockets on a slab to the top. Consistent and a decent length (for the area) but probably not the .12a that's listed in the guide. Regardless, one of the better climbs in the area, and in the park in my opinion.
