Shade at the boulders

Description 

Short but overhanging sandstone with a couple fun problems. The wall itself is about 20 yards long in the shade almost all day. Not a destination area but an excellent place to train for locals mostly due to proximity and not worrying about every hold breaking off *cough* Mystery Science Theater. At first I hesitated at putting this up however there have been no access issues for the time I have been climbing here. As the rest of the areas in the local vicinity have been shut down I thought that this would be a convenient alternative. Please leave no trace. Also feel free to chip in on the grading, I know its off.

Also don't climb here after rain, the holds will break.


Getting There 

Exit the 101 and head north on Moorpark Road then turn right on Gainsborough Road. You will see the boulders sticking out of a hill on the left, nicknamed Tarantula Hill by locals.
