Malibu Creek Rock Climbing

I really enjoy rock climbing in Malibu Creek. I have been there a couple of times now and just went on Sunday with a guy I had just met at Rockreation Climbing Gym.  He brought a couple of his buddies too so the four of us went out there and had a full day of rock climbing.

Malibu Creek is really cool because you have to do an unprotected traverse over the creek just to get to the climbing area!

I did a few climbs: warmed up with a 5.9 that was interesting because it transitioned from big jug holds to much more bodyweight leaning into the rock at the top with small holds. We then went and did a short overhanging 5.10b climb twice that also had big juggy holds. One of the guys I was with was working on a 5.11a and ended up taking a 20 foot fall! He was fine though since he had a good belayer who made sure he didn’t jerk at the bottom of the rope.

I finished off the day with a 5.10a climb that was really fun and traversed my way back to the trail and hiked out. Good times!
