Description 

The Hillcrest boulders are home to some of the largest features and most classic routes at the Nut Tree Boulders. Unfortunately it's also one of the most spread out areas requiring some effort when jumping from rock to rock. Not to worry though, as boulders dot the entire trail and hillside all the way from Scotts Rock near the road to the Mother Boulder at the very peak of the tallest hill.

There is something for everyone here from classic V0's to the areas current hardest and most classic problem (Scotts Traverse) coming in at a very stout and sustained V9. Highballs, overhangs, cracks, traverses and pumpy face routes. This area has it all and more than enough climbing to keep you coming back no matter what your abilities.

Getting There 

The area is accessible by approaching from either the Boxcar Woody Boulders or the more popular approach from Hillcrest Cir, from which they get their name.

Featured Route For Hillcrest Boulders
Space Lord- Mutha, Mutha!!

Space Lord V0 4 CA : Sacramento Valley/Foothills : ... : Mother Boulder
On the west facing side of the Mother Boulder is a flat less than vertical face. There are many holds and ways one could go, but it's more or less strait up the center of the face. The crux is getting off the ground and established on the wall. The higher you climb the better the holds get until you're topping out on jugs. This makes the route popular for those who are looking to train their heads more than those looking to pull down hard. No moves harder than 5.9...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
