The steepness at The Lost World

This area is still being reviewed for climbing by the City, Please be careful, and low key. MORE INFO >>>


This is a small route climbing area with two distinct walls right next to one another. One is slabby and the other is really steep. Both are shaded and secluded. Mainly sport climbing on both.

Getting There 

Follow the directions to the lower reservoir and hike the trail that breaks right and away from the lower reservoir. As the trail begins downhill you will see another trail in about 100 yards that leads to a tall freestanding rock tower. Head that way, the cliffs are just beyond this tower.

Climbing Season
