The man-made "Bat Cave" up the trail from the last parking area on the left side of Canyon Dr..

Mostly bad rock on the outside, but more solid inside the cave itself. There are some fun problems in the cave, if you can find them. Doesn't see much climbing, so there's no chalk marks or route info. Bring a headlamp.

Getting There 

Head up Canyon Dr. from Franklin and park at the last little parking area on the left before the gate. Then head up the large trail across the street for 5 minutes to the obvious cave entrance.

The Rental (Pizza Boy) V2 5+  California : Los Angeles Basin : ... : Bronson Canyon/The Bat Cave
Begins at 2 and 9 o'clock on the "pizza pie slice" on the left about 23 feet into the mouth of the cave. Lots of opportunities to cross your limbs and work your feet. Crux move is right in the middle on the obvious sloper rail. Ends at the cave entrance or as far out as you'd like to venture.This climbs great from right to left but I'm sure is un the other way as well. Enjoy!4/20/2017 EDIT - Went back yeste...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
