The Ben Lewis Bridge and Joe Brown, Mt. Rubidoux

Description 

This area has a number of good boulder problems and top ropes, all with excellent rock quality. A number of the climbs are difficult to label as either bolder problems or Top Ropes, so use your judgement to decide how you want to tackle them.

Joe Brown and Half Dome Boulder are located above the bridge while the Harrison Boulder is to be found downslope below the bridge.

The classic climbs found here include The Mug, The Eye, Trapeze and Pink Bug.

Getting There 

Walk up the access road. Just south of the summit the road has a bridge. This bridge is at the center of the area.

A good climb. Start below and to the left of the obvious 'eye' in the rock. Make some hard moves up and along a rail until you have the eye by the socket. Don't hang around too long before heading up onto easier ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
