The lonely little Prowler Boulder.

Description 

These breccia boulders are nestled in and around the crag "Mystery Science Theater" in the rolling hills of Newbury Park.

The rock here can be quite brittle and sharp at times but smooth and subtle at others. There are good lines up here but most are chossy still unfortuately. 98% of the bouldering here is lowball one move wonder kinda stuff but there are proving to be quite a number of lip traverses that offer fun moves. Landings are generally very good to excellent. Knock on flakes and iffy holds before trusting them. Needs a day or two after a steady rain shower like most of the rock around here. Watch out for mountain bikers. Lots of potential for more bouldering and roped climbing the further back Edison Rd. you go though there is some private land to watch out for back there. Areas can be found by scrolling down to the photos below.

Grading is pretty much the efforts of a small group of guys, feel free to throw in if you want.

Gas, Food, Coffee: Probably one of the many Starbucks or Beano Veano in Dos Vientos. Conejo Coffee exists right by Dennys. Don't go to Raggamuffin. Tres Amigos Mexican food is just down the street next to Trader Joes. Tony's Pizza has $2.00 monster slices and it's on Kimber across from the church. There's an In and Out off of Ventu Park. Billy Dz BBQ is good for a big feed and a beer after a long day and it's across from the 76 on Wendy. There's an Urgent Care on Newbury Rd, the closest hospital is Los Robles on Lynn. The schools get out around 2 every day so for an hour the town is a traffic jam but before and after, especially on weekdays, you'll be by yourself. Best gas prices are the Arco off of Borchard and the 76 off of Wendy.

Other notes: La Barrenca is listed as "Coyote Beach" in a few guidebooks. I've never heard anyone talk about this place by any name other than La Barrenca. No one climbs there. Located in a canyon by a park off Ventu Rd. The rock here is water polished hard sandstone conglomerate with a delicate dusting of fecal matter. The old 1 bolt sport climb has since faded to nothing but the problems still exist from Anderson's decades old guidebook. Access is a bit of a nightmare (made more so by having a pad). Equally as deterring he incorrectly lists this area as a wildlife preserve- It's actually the upstream of a sewage treatment plant so take that into mind when brushing off your problems (IE don't brush your problems unless you want to be patient zero). Surprisingly a bit of a party scene on the weekends. Lots of graffiti.
The "Lonesome Cube" down in Camarillo Springs park is fenced off indefinitely but there are a few lowballs up the dirt road. You already probably know this stuff, if you've read this far you're either stuck in this town, too lazy/ can't drive to Stoney, or are a local. Probably all three. Hey, Alex.

There's an abundance of poison oak in the area, especially in the Irish boulders. Just keep an eye out and you'll be golden.

Getting There 

Get off the 101 on Wendy. Get onto Old Conejo Rd. Take Reino to a turn on Lesser toward the hills, a left on Calle Alta Vista and park by the fire hydrant. Trailhead is on your left. 20 minute walk along the cleared trail gets you to the start of the bouldering.

Mom I Arête My Bed V2 5+  California : Los Angeles Basin : ... : Conejo Boulders
Absolute classic... perfect volcanic arête with pockets, pinches and exposed topout. Stand start with a good left hand undercling pinch pocket thing and a razor sharp right side pull crimp. Pasting your feet for the start is tricky but you'll find a sweet spot. Once on throw your left hand onto the bomber arête. Readjust feet and dead point a small slopey pinch. From here get higher feet along the arête until you feel like you can reach your right hand on the obvious rail on the face or to th...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
