Climbing Lizard’s Mouth

Lizard’s Mouth

Panoramic views of Santa Barbara and dramatic rock formations make Lizard’s Mouth a favorite for both hard-core rock climbers and anyone who loves the great outdoors. With plenty of caves and hideaways, it’s easy to spend a day discovering new places in the seemingly endless fields of rocks.

Mike Johnson has spent a lot of time in the area since learning to climb almost three years ago. “I used to be a pro mountain biker and do motocross, but I decided to switch to something a little safer, where I didn’t break as many bones,” he said while waiting for a friend with his dog, Sam. Although the trail is beautiful, beware of broken glass. “This place is great, but it needs a lot of cleanup,” he said. “I always pick up some trash when I’m out here.”
