The topout of the cave. Also known as 'The Tufa'

Stay on marked/established trails to avoid the private homes to the SE. They have been known to be mean to climbers.


Shade until late afternoon. Often dry after a light rain. Often soaked for weeks after a heavy rain.

Getting There 

Google Aquarian Valley or Skyline Slabs

Aquarian Valley/Devils Canyon 

This small bouldering cave is located in Long Ridge Open Space and offers some of the steepest bouldering in the Bay Area. There are a few routes in the area as well and some large slabs to the north and south. This area is best known for the 'Family of Love' who manufactured STP-LSD at the base of the canyon. This area is also known as 'Devils Canyon' and is sort of a local sercret. Very cool history of the area-Google 'The Land, Black Mountain' if you want some more info on the history.

There is a LOT of rock in this valley and the valley that runs n/s at the bottom of the Canyon. Go see what you can find!

Please be mindful of the approach. Climbers have been shot at (with bb's) by homeowners nearby-it's not right, but it is senseless to instigate it also. Don't trespass. Ask about the best approach if you are unsure.
