  • Description 

    Woodsonesque boulders. Locals Only. ;)

    Seriously though, if you go, feel free to help with trail maintenance. A lot of hard work went into creating what is there. Leave it cleaner than you found it.

    Climbers have been running around this hill for a long time, not sure the exact history, but I understand that one chap in particular spent a lot of time climbing/developing/ and maintaining trails here. Many thanks.

    Unknown slant crack traverse burrito 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  California : San Diego County : ... : Tennis Racket Crack Area
    Would be a weird TR. Drag a pad along as you go, or just man up? Cool leaning finger/hands traverse, slight overhand, travels around the boulder. Rating is not mine....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
