The hike is like 1000 feet to the top, climbs are rusted bolts or trad, if you can find all 3 of them.

Swylie;
Most of the climbs there are either TR, or boulder problems.
I don't know if it's changed or not, but back in the 80s, there were certain days you could drive to the top and park. You just had to make sure you were out before the area closed and they padlock the gates closed.
Make sure you have a file or hacksaw in the vehicle, if you happen to get locked in after closing. :lol:

Swylie....that's really some weak sauce!! The romp up Mt. Rubidoux is fun and not more than 500 ft. If you don't have an adventurous spirit you'll never find the more the 400 established boulder problems and TRs on the hill. Numerous guidebooks by Craig Fry, Mackey, Herzog, Sherman highlight the great problems that dot the hillsides of Mt. Rubidioux. The 1983 & 1984 S. California Bouldering Championships organized by Randy Vogel were staged at Mt. Rubidoux. Unfortunately, CosmicCragsman is incorrect, the park gate has been permanently closed since the 1990s and traffic up and down the road is prohibited. Euan Cameron stated that the rock is
high quality, just like the climbs. If you couldn't locate them you missed out. Sounds like sour grapes!!
