Moro Rock has some Fine Climbing on all faces and the Descent is the easiest around, just take the Stairs! We usually park on the edge of the parking lot, the South Side is a favorite for all the South and East Face Routes. If your going down to the West Face you can park right by the old Bathrooms just as you enter the parking lot on the right. The main parking issue is Don't leave any Food in you Car! This means anything that even smells like food! Bears are all over the place around the Moro Parking Lot and they will break into your car. The West Face Routes can be accessed by going down from the old bathrooms. After going through some Bushes, head South and watch for ledges. The other West Face access is by Rapping the 'Offramp' route to Zocalo Ledge where many Routes can be accessed. There are good Anchors all the way down. As you head up the Stairs, as soon as you get a view of the Valley, West, is where you can go down. Anchors are had right around the corner from the Stairs walk.From this same Rap anchor you can go further North and watch for bolts. This is a fairly new Rap Route that takes you all the way to the Bottom for routes like 'The Bottom Line'. Usually around the end of May, June they have a Peregrine Falcon closure for all East Side Routes including the'South Face'. We all try to honor this and hopefully future climbers will follow suit.
