You gotta get on your hands and knees and pray, which will show you the proper tunneling position. A good belly slide crux also improves the appreciation of the fruits of the labor.

I still remember a fine day about 20-25 years ago, where yo y mis amigos set out to find a climbing destination, spent all day alternating between the open blistering sun and tunneling on our hands and knees under the low chaparral canopy, and I think we got to the place at sunset. Too beat to climb, and more concerned about getting back, but it was still an awesome day.

Tunneling...LMAO.
I always thought the snakes were worse. Got into a snake pit once climbing up on Lawson Peak. Lucky I got out without a bite. My buddy was 30 feet over trying to find a better way and his blood curdling scream told me he found snakes as well. San Diego East County must be the rattlesnake capital of America.

Bump for San Diego climbing/bushwacking.
Miss everything but the poison oak and rattlesnakes.

I remember a time climbing at Crest and going down the hill toward the golf course to check out some lower rocks. We were walking on top of the brush and were about 4-5 ft above the ground. Next thing we hear is a rattler right under neath us. We picked up speed and hoped the brush wouldn't give way and have us wrestling with a rattlesnake. Definitely lots of rattlesnakes in SD county.

Anyone have any info on the length of the hike into Valley of the Moon if you do not have 4 wheel drive? Thinking about cruising out there tomorrow but thought I heard the hike is like 3 miles without the 4 wheel drive. Info anyone?

Most cars can go the first 1/2 mile to an overlook parking spot just before the concrete section.
Some ground clearance will get you another 1/2 mile to the saddle.
After that the road gets worse, but easy to walk.
It's about 1.3 miles to the camping areas, where there's some climbing. And then another mile to the main climbing.
But also, every year the road gets worse and they don't always even fix the first mile to get to the antennas.

Awesome, thanks for the info Splater. Will have to check weather I guess and prepare for a long hike if we go.
