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.
Stand start, both hands on generous hold about chest-height, feet on narrow ledges below (a more generous angled foothold can be found a little bit up and to the left). Traverse right, some smearing required; very small toe-holds along the horizontal crack here. Straight up to topout, watch out for the slender branch overhanging, or go right a bit to avoid it.
