Not sure if this should be in the Northern or Souther California forum but I'll ask anyways.

I have a job offer near Cambria and before moving my family out there and accepting I wanted to know more about the area. Anyone live near there?
Is there anything to do? Climb? How affordable is it?

Any tips at all for the area?

Thanks

Big Boulder, just a bit downhill from Temple of Kali. Alabama Hills, CA.

Cambria, is beautiful. It is more of a Northen California location.....

Not a climbers paradice though, some stuff near SLO... old school trad that the new locals hate cause Tobin and Erik Eriksson did the FA's ... some bouldering.

Cayucos is a small beach town about 15 miles south from Cambria... It is a beach town right out of California circa 1960.... I would kill my mom if I could live and work there.

SLO has a college population and gets rock bands to drop in and has a good bar scene.

Oh yea.... you never said where your from now... so its affordable- if your usta California prices. It is a BEACH aera.

If your from HOUSTON your going to be in for a shock....

The good news is this... you can get to the meat of western Sierra climbing in about 4 - 5 hours... so if you love rockclimbing... everything from Yosemite south to Kernville (Needles) is your weekend climbing.

Thanks for the info!
We're living in Sacramento now, so prices seem a little higher, but yes nothing too crazy.

The climbing near SLO looked good, probably perfect for weekend trips / after work.

Overall seems pretty slow, laid back and an older population. Worried we would get bored after a few years. I'll look into Cayucos though. Any other areas nearby that would be more livable?

Thanks

Sacramento = BBQ pit.

Cambria = cool paradise.

So your from California you know the drill...

I know there must be bouldering around Cambria... you can see some large boulders sitting in private fields and down in some of the PO choked canyons around Cambria. I go there - Cayucos - for vacation and like to just hang at the beach....

You might want to rundown Tom Slater.... local who makes guide books.
