Climbing Sections:


Large Boulder just off the Lake Hodges Mtn bike trail. Two short 5.8-5.9 sport leads and a mix of other boulder problems and projects from very easy to very hard. Other near by boulders look fun as well. Nice place to stop and climb on a day out Mtn biking the trails around the lake.
Nearest town or city: Escondido, CA
Directions: I 15 to Via Rancho Parkway, or Del Dios highway, to Lake st, to the Lake Hodges parking lot at the boat launch. fallow the trail off the west side of lot 1/2 mile look up left and back for the group rocks just below the upper bike trail. from upper bike trail walk down to rocks this may be the better way to approach as it is closer to established bike trail.
Latitude, Longitude: 33.06231, -117.09388
Access Issues: Stay on trails as the fire burned through this area and an effort is being made to replant the native plants on the hillsides. The fire however has exposed and made it possible to reach the rock around this area and there is plenty of unclimbed rock in the area.
Camping: No
When to Climb: Spring
