Access Issue: Currently only specific parts of park are open. Permit required. Details
Banning State Park has only recently chosen to allow rock climbing (Summer 2014). Currently climbing is only allowed in designated areas. For the most up to date access information, ask at the park office where you can also obtain a (free) climbing permit which is required. Please be extra respectful of this area so climbing continues to be allowed and hopefully expanded to other areas. Keep cleaning to a minimum and be respectful of other park guest. Many of the climbs are along trails so please move pads (especially sketchy/unstable pads) or make sure guests know they can step on them when passing by.
Sit start using obvious hold in the center of the slab. Climb straight up. Once you reach the huge ledge a foot below the topout, it might be best to traverse left to topout as the stone at the topout directly above the start feels loose and quite sketchy.
Directly below the teachers overlook parking lot. You can see the top out from the informational signs at the overlook, but you might not realize that it is a pit with slab walls in it.
