Lots of sport routs, with a couple of easy trad routs.
Being one of Southern California's most intriguing sport climbing resources. The crag's specialty: super-long, single-pitch, bolted routes (up to 170'!), ranging in difficulty from about 5.8 to 5.14a, on highly featured granite.
The quarry is almost exclusively a lead area. There are a few climbs you could top rope in the Metro area if you scrambled up to the sidewalk ledge below Gumption. The only other option is to lower in from the top of the quarry which is very scary unless you know where you're going and have a very long rope. There are some very easy climbs (5.1- 5.9) in the Schoolhouse Rock area and Fun Factory that would allow you to put of a couple ropes, but you would still need to lead those easy routes.
Remember the weather can change very quickly so bring warm or cold weather clothing.
What to Bring:
- Sun protection
- Lunch and/snack
- Harness, climbing shoes, belay device, quickdraws, helmet (if you have one), etc... if you don't have gear you won't climb!
- If you have a rope bring it
- Any other equipment you may have/need for sport climbing
