Approximately 60 routes with the majority being very short bolted sport climbs. Bring your trad gear too as there are some good trad lines here as well, even a two pitch climb.
The rock is identical to nearby Mt Rubidoux, so good technique in both footwork and crimping is a necessity. The cliffs feature easy top access which allows for easy TR setups for the majority of the routes.
This is one of the warmer destinations in the Inland Empire, so weekends or mornings are best for Summer; the climbing here is superb in the winter when you want to be in the sun.
