About Foothill Crag:

The crag consists of 2 faces, the east being 90-feet tall while the west is just 55-feet tall. There are quite a few bolts, but take some gear if you want to climb in safety. All routes can easily be toproped. 5.8 to 11b, mainly in the 9-easy to 10 range. Update: mostly just a toprope site. "The Crack," "Moon Doggies," and "Magic Feather" (and maybe even "Ruthless Poodles") are reasonable leads--about as well protected as leads at San Ysidro. Only the boldest of lead climbers will be comfortable on other routes. Also, the rock at this crag is unusually soft--especially on the upper-half of Clean Sweep and Sob Story. Treat all bolts and gear with suspicion.
