Climbing at Mystery Science Theater, Conejo Mountains, CA

We got to Thousand Oaks, CA a bit early and our AirBnB was still not ready, so we decided to look for some climbing nearby. We chose Conejo Mountain.

Conejo Mountain is tucked behind some residential homes and the 101 highway. Instructions on how to get Mystery Science Theater is a bit unclear. There seems to be certain areas that are off-limit to the public.

For information on the routes available or problems, consult Mountain Project.

How we got to this climb, and it seems to coincide with the vague details on Mountain Project, was we parked at:

3860 Calle Alta Vista
Thousand Oaks, CA 91320

Coordinates: 34.187691, -118.958246

There should be a public sign. Walk past the sign and make a right and follow the path until you reach Mystery Science Theater. The walk should take you 15-20 minutes.

With the time that we had, we played around on: Comet X (5.9)The Beginning of the End (5.10 c/d), and Pamela (5.6).

In all, Mystery Science Theater seems like a convenient place for beginners to experience both rope climbs and bouldering. Although the proximity of the cacti to the boulders makes me nervous. Don't fall. Don't fall. Don't fall.
