SoCal Climbing: Stoney Point

Action Report - Climbing at Stoney Point
Los Angeles (Chatsworth), CA
August 3, 2008

[[ fyi... action reports are brief versions of trip reports or other updates from Amber and I when we don't have a good reason to do a full write up or don't have pictures (like when we're the only climbers), etc... ]]

We made a trip down to the LA area for Amber's little nephew's second birthday party and decided it would be fun to do some rock climbing on the way out of town. Turns out one of the popular LA crags is smack dab inbetween her brother's house and her parent's house!

We picked up Chris Owen's guide to Stoney Point (allegedly the most scenic place in Los Angeles) and hit the crag Sunday morning. We set up an anchor and climbed an easy chimney route on the back wall, then played on one of the boulders. Climbing on the sandstone in the heat was a bit of a pain, but it was still a fun day. We stopped on the way out of town to stuff ourselves on chicken nachos and fish tacos, then hightailed it back to the bay area.
