BETA PHOTO: North West Face of Dumbarton Rock


The North West face is both intimidating and inspiring. This sheet of rock has held the boldest and the hardest routes anywhere in the world for decades.

As well as the most difficult routes it also hold some classic easier climbs well within the reaches of mere mortals.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, walk north west, the first cliffs on the left form the North Face, continue on around and as you see large boulders directly in front of you'll be able to see the inspirational North West face up on your left.
