Description 

A small collection of rocks seldom climbed that are high on a hill with clear western exposure and views out to the ocean (sunsets are beautiful, but the cops/rangers will get you in the parking lot for parking past sunset). There are a number of short bolted sport routs here that are easy to set a top-rope on without having to lead them first.

Getting There 

This area is located in the Long Ridge Open Space. Find and follow the trail to Aquarian Falls. Shortly before reaching the falls take a faint trail across Peters Creek and up the steep hillside. Pass the tafoni rocks to your right (very brittle so don't try climbing them). shortly after passing these rocks you will come to a level area in the trees that is more or less the top of the ridge. Walk South/West and down a little through some rocks and you will find yourself at the top of the climbing area.

Getting up above the first bolt and on one's way to the second can be a little changing, but the true crux is working one's way over the bulge and above the final bolt to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
