Rock Scaling on PCH in Ventura County, 11/25 and 11/26

Contract rock climbers scaled the slopes along Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1) near Mugu Rock on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

The Springs Fire that occurred in May, burned much of the vegetation and wire mesh that helps hold the rocks and debris to the slopes.  The fire also caused many of the rocks to crack.

In the second phase of this rock mitigation project, a helicopter will be used to install rock netting to the hillside in early December.
