In 1860 William Holcomb discovered gold in a valley north in Big Bear Lake, over a hundred years later gold was discovered again...by rock climbers!
Holcomb Valley Pinnacles is one of Southern California's premiere sport climbing areas, with knobby granite domes and walls nestled deep in the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest. Most of the climbs here are in the 5.10 range or below, and the year round temperatures are friendly, even in the winter months if you climb in the sun. Only two hours from the urban centers makes it an ideal destination for a day visit, plus camping is available locally.
So get yer 'draws and head up to find Sky Forest Gold!
