Great quality granite. Plethora of bouldering and top rope problems. A few lead routes as well. Certain spots can get crowded with groups, but the area usually affords plenty of route areas to avoid people if you wish.
Take Hwy 60 or Hwy 91 and go to Rubidoux. The mountain is the obvious granite boulder strewn one with a white cross on top of it. If approaching from the east, take 14th st. to Glenwood. Park just south on Glenwood, by the gate entrance and trail head (don't block the gate). If approaching from the west (Hwy 60), take the Mission Blvd. exit and head east. You'll see Mount Rubidoux on your right up ahead. You can then take Redwood (right) to 14th (right) to Glenwood (left) and park a block or two up it. Once you see the hill with the cross you can also park anywhere legal closer to the spot you wish to head.

Unfortunately, this route along with "In the Picture" and "Teflon" has been damaged by copious amounts of rock-colored paint at its start (done to cover up graffiti). While an effort has been made to remove paint from the most crucial footholds, these problems have d...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
