The Bonita Crag is located in South County San Diego. It's a little known area with 4 easily accessible routes 3 of which are good quality. The rock itself is high quality. This is the ideal spot for a climber in the area to throw up a climb without the drive and when time is of the essence. Unsure of when the area was developed it's enjoyable and rarely climbed due to little knowledge of the area.
Take the 805 freeway to 54 east. Take the Briarwood exit and head south (right) to the bottom of the hill. Turn left on Sweetwater road. Stay straight for about 2 miles and turn right on Quarry road. There's construction in the area. Drive to where the houses end and pull off the road and park. Make the 5 minute hike under the bridges to the visible pipe. Hike down the hill and the wall is on the left.
A good climb with a fun start using a crack and some finger pockets to a mantle. From there climb up to the right of the arete to the crux of the climb. Top out at the anchors....[more]Browse More Classics in CA
Great little place for a half day of climbing. Rock quality is pretty solid. The bolts and shuts all seem good but I won't complain if anyone wants to replace the open-shut anchors! (I guess it's just mental) Just out of curiosity, Kraig, where did you find route name info?
Pay attention to the weather as this small gorge must be very dangerous in flash flood conditions! (There's a reason all that bamboo is laying on its side...)
Bill. We had posted a sign on the rock asking anyone who knew about the area to call me, and sought to find the developer of the area. Never found anything out, so as we cleaned up the rock a little we started to name the climbs based on South Park. But if someone knows the actual names I'd love to know them. I really want to know who developed the area. I've cleaned up some of the trash before but it just keeps coming back. I'm glad people are using it. It's not too bad if you live down here and don't want to drive.
Bill when were you there last? I'm out of climbing for awhile. I tore two ligaments while bouldering at Solid Rock OT about 3 weeks ago and will be moving out of town in June for 7 months, so I wont be around. Was there chalk on the wall? Did it look like someone had been there at all?
saw your older post. ive been going for yrs. was basicly closed for few yrs why freeway was being built. seven routes. main wall on north side are best.4 routes left to right are 11b,10c,12a, and 9. south side are 10a,10b and 8. good sport wall to hit up once or twice yr
Went out here to Bonita yesterday. Had a lot of problems finding the climb. When you first head out here, stay left along the dirt trail, you will be looking for a big white pipe spanning a gap over a small creek. That pipe is also in a semi fenced in area (most predominant man made thing out there till you hike in a little further). Once you reach this part, head down the steep hill/rocks on the right side of the fence. All in all this place is pretty trashy and a little sketchy but some decent climbing.
Climbed here a few times in the last week (most local rock). There is a large beehive you can see when hiking down to the start of these climbs - be careful as they swarmed last time I was there. No one was stung or attacked but figured we were pushing our luck, so we left - I'm not sure if anyone knows of a bee service that's does free removal or maybe allied climbers?
