The Left Wall receives sunlight most of the day, but may be slightly cooler during the mid-morning hours. Temperatures may be a few degrees higher than El Cajon, so if climbing in the summer make sure to bring plenty of water.
The rock is granite and generally good; however, due to the number of climbs and pattern of development, rock fall from other climbers necessitates wearing a helmet.
The approach from the road is approximately 60 to 90 minutes with an elevation gain of about 1,800 feet.

My climbing partner and I got stuck in the rain and the dark on the rappel off of meteor yesterday and got our rope caught in the meantime. We made it down safely but had to abandon the rope; it is tied off at the last rap station just under the roof. If anyone is able to salvage the rope and willing to return it, please contact me at email@example.com. It is a green 60 m rope with red and blue accented stitching.
