Shady in the afternoon and great venue for after work climbing especially when its hot elsewhere.

Sandstone, with a variety of crack and face routes (usually a combo of each). Many variations possible. Over a dozen routes on the small, compact crag.

Very short approach. Some helpful trail work (some real effort!) in progress. Nice flat staging area at the base could easily accomodate a small group or two.

Small amount of parking at the head of the approach trail. Be sure to pull completely off the road (more room on the downhill side from the trail location).

Getting There 

PCH then head north on Sunset BLVD. At the first traffic light, Palisades, turn left. At around 1.5 miles the crag is barely visible on the left, poking out over the top of the trees near the base.

Does anyone know what the story is with the line of bolts directly left of Perro De La Guerra? I don't think it's listed in the guidebook.
It looks hard and I've never seen anyone on it.

Its called Yahoo Predator 8a or 13b/R I put it up with Scott Cosgrove. Unrepeated..No chipped or modified holds..If you fall off going for the 4th bolt you can break you ankles on the ledge while falling sideways. be mindful of the ledge.
