About San Ysidro Face:

To get there, take the San Ysidro exit off of Highway 101 and head north (toward the mountains). Turn right onto East Valley Road then left up Park Lane to Mountain Drive. Turn left on Mountain Drive and after a quarter mile you should see the trail head on the right. Park and follow trail for about 15 mins. The rock can be seen on the left of the trail across a small creek. This area can be dangerous for sport leaders. Many of the routes require trad gear to be well protected, and some of the routes are runout through easier sections. Most of the routes do not toprope well due to rope drag or pendulum.
