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.

Climbing Season

Lucky V0 4  California : Los Angeles Basin : ... : Bronson Canyon/The Bat Cave
Start on a good right hand and a high left pocket. Then a strenuous move up to a big left hand. Then right hand up to a sharp crimp below and right of the big left. From there it's two big jugs up to the knob hanging down from the roof of the cave. There's a shitty crimp on the top side of it, and not much else. Hang on for as long as you can, then aim for you pad!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
