Description 

The Teeth is an out of the way destination for most people, but has a few top rope problems worth checking out and one of the only clean splitter hand cracks in the Bay Area. You are sure to find solitude and shade in the summer. The rock quality varies from worthless choss to solid rock. If you don't like what you find on these rocks, no worry, there is plenty of room for new routes. Watch out for poison oak. This is one of the few area's in the canyon where poison oak is present near climbs.


Getting There 

From the bottom of the canyon they are the group of rock furthest to the left and near the top of the hill. Approach from the top and walk down their north side to reach the climbs. There's not much of a trail but the walk is mostly open space. Approaching from the bottom of the canyon requires bushwhacking the whole way while likely unsuccessfully dodging massive amounts of poison oak.

Featured Route For The Teeth
Took a while wandering around to find this crack. The hillside is fairly steep and eroded so be careful.

Periodontal Fracture 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CA : SF Bay Area : ... : The Teeth
This crack varies from hands to fists and hosts some great hand jamming and is sustained from the start until you clip the anchors. The crack is solid as bay area sandstone gets but the rock on the outside of the crack is a bit loose. So looking for foot and hand holds outside of the crack is not a real great option. Watch for Poison oak at the base. It has been wiped out several times but comes back every few years. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
