I recently discovered Eagle Rock in Pasadena. Considering that I just moved to Pasadena, the thought of having something like this seemed great. I haven't been there in person, but the photos I have seen make it look like literally a dirt pile with some pieces of rock sticking out of it. Additionally, the few bolts that are on the top look terrifying...like they are basically sticking out of the dirt.

Anyone have thoughts about this place?

old 1/4" bolt.
agd.....Yep, Eagle Rock is a pile! Basically one route on the left side (5.8) and a sketchy collection of studs and old bolts on top ( if you can get there). That route is reasonably clean, but the rest of the rock is fairly loose and chossy. If it was worthwhile and so accessible you'd expect there to be a couple dozen routes on it if it had ANYTHING going for it, right? IMHO

Mind sharing what the closest real rock is to Pasadena? I'd happily take pretty much anything thats not a pile. Even if its just a few routes.

Super choss pile. But it has fresh bolts at the top now. Fun to get a lap in just to say you climbed it and thats it.

Route wise? I would say the Riverside Quarry in Rubidoux.

malibu creek is closer than the quarry, and is less manufactured.

if you calculate the approach time I would say the quarry is closest. I usually take into account the moment I live my pad to actually touching rock

stoney point is hands down the closest real rock to pasadena, only ~30 miles away with easy access. can't believe mc and the quarry were mentioned first (typical sport climber mentality).

You can head up into Big Bear as well. Lots of fun crags up there besides just Holcomb Valley. I think it's about 2 hrs from Pasadena

There's more than one use for an Ice Hammer. Lake District (UK) late '70s
DITTO: Stoney Point is a great venue for bouldering, plus you'll meet lifelong friends there, and maybe even your (future) wife like I did.
