Lenny72Nice Little Workout  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 4, 2016


I had never hiked here before and Google Maps took me to the fire road side. No problem; the road is pretty direct so it provided a good workout. Lots of cool, huge boulders along the way. Potato Chip Rock was fun and I enjoyed great views all the way out to downtown San Diego and the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Met several people from Brazil, France and South Korea. Fun!

Date Climbed: Dec 7, 2012


Climbed it a second time this year to get the class 3 summit block, which is somewhat hidden behind a building. Hit some nice boulders along the way, and Potato Chip Rock is always fun. Very busy on weekends.

gimpilatorWinter Solstice Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 21, 2014


Hiked up with Heather and Robbin from Lake Poway. It was crowded near potato chip rock and someone had a red wagon with a stereo playing Christmas music. We were pleased to find that the highest boulder had a make shift ladder leading up a short class 3 scramble. There were 4 bench markers.

Ted BauerGood Training Hike  Sucess!

I have completed this hike numerous times. It serves as a great training climb if you start from the Blue Sky Reserve and go up the Lake Poway route. It can also be ran if you don't feel like carrying a pack.

MavrickCJHGood Views  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 23, 2012
We hiked beginning from Lake Poway, which allows free admission with military ID. It was in the high 70's and the trail was very dusty. There were some really nice views once you start getting towards the top. We went on the weekend and the trail was very crowded. I wouldn't do this hike again unless I was going during the week. There was a line of at least 80 people waiting to get on the "Potato Chip" once we got to that point, to give you an idea. Overall it was a decent workout and I got some good pictures.

Date Climbed: Dec 27, 2012


I really dislike hiking on roads (especially paved ones), but had to tag the summit. Cool, huge boulders to look at along the way, though.

PrzemekNot technical  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 21, 2011
This one is not so hard....If you go on the asphalt road it goes straight up, no breaks, but it's not technical, just good pair of running shoes. Lots of sight seeing and photo oportunities. Summit is OK, gotta look for a good boulder to sit on and enjoy the view. Next time will try the climb from the lake.

twigasaurusGreat Views  Sucess!


I've done this several times. It's a good way to get in shape, and the scenery's not bad to look at either. From the top you can see downtown San Diego...on a clear day.

Nice Bouldering possibilities on way to summit. The summit is a little dissapointing however.

Climbed the back side from Highway 67 and mountain biked down to Poway Lake. Lots of fun.

HeyItsBenHike 'n' climb  Sucess!


Hiked to the actual summit once from Poway Lake, the paved road at the top along with all the radio towers convinced not to do it again. Been back many times for rock climbing though, did one of my first trad leads here. Robbin's crack is awesome, hope to lead it sometime soon.

SierraSunrise85West Approach from Blue Sky  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 14, 2010


I've come out here 4 or 5 times before on 67 and climbed up the service road on the East Side. Last week I decided to climb Woodson via the West route from the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve. Great hike, brought my climbing shoes and did lots of bouldering and scrambling and bushwhacking to the top. These boulders are huge and endless, great place for all levels of climbers.
