Came here for climbing a few times. The main cliff is right by the entrance. It was easy to walk around to the top of the cliff to set ropes. There are a few good vertical cracks but other than that the climbing is very difficult. If you poke around you'll find "Hammond Eggs" which is a circle of boulders with a few technical routes, bring a pad for spotting. The overhang is usually chalked up.

Came here for rock climbing and ended up hiking a bit. The rock is great for climbing and the trails are well maintained. Cool park if you live nearby, but not necessarily a destination spot.
