Rock Climbers Paradise
Stoney Point, an LA city park is part of the mostly sandstone Simi Hills in the Santa Susanna mountains. It is one of the most historically important climbing spots in the greater Los Angeles area. With a towering crag, chutes, canyons, scrambling and boulders, this famous climbing spot offers a climbers feast.
Right here in Chatsworth is a park that is available for those experienced in safely climbing outside. Once that basic is granted and understood, climbers of different ability levels can find over 190 routes here, from scrambling to v1-v3 and 5.9-5.10 and above difficulty levels. If you love to climb and hang out with fellow local climbers, this is the spot for you.
World renowned climbers Royal Robbins, Yvon Chouinard, Bob Kamps, Ron Kauk, John Long and John Bachar all climbed and trained at Stoney point. 50 years ago, Robbins and Chouinard ruled the place. On weekends, newbies and veterans alike take part in the same addiction. Newcomer or non-local enthusiasts are always welcomed. A great local hike is to circumnavigate the bulgy outcropping while watching all the climbers!
On your way south from the 118 freeway to the Tiny Tiki Trailer Zone you drive right past this stunning iconic ancient rock formation. Free parking on Topanga Canyon Blvd.
