Description 

The Northeast face of Craigmont park offers several quality beginner routes, ranging from 5.5 to 5.10b.

The climbing is up a cracked slab, probably the best place that I've ever seen to bring beginners. There are 3 bolt top anchors on two different spots on the rock, and also a tree that would be good for an anchor on the far left side.

To set a top anchor, walk around to the top of the park past the basketball hoop. There is a rock wall that has a clearing with a path leading downhill in the middle. Follow this down 20 feet to bolts headed off the left of the rock.

Getting There 

Approach time: 1 minuteHead down the trail to the left of the bathrooms. The rock is about 100 feet downhill on the right side of the path, where the top anchors are easily seen.

Featured Route For Northeast Face
Take the larger crack. The smaller seam looks like...

Mont Crackula 5.8- 5b 16 VI- 14 VS 4c PG13  CA : San Francisco Bay : ... : Northeast Face
Bit of a one move wonder with the crux coming just above a ledge at the start of the crack. scramble up the dirty 5-easy to a ledge and ride the hand-sized crack to the top. Seemed to go slightly harder than the undercling.*I could not find this climb in Bay Area Rock or anywhere on the internet, so I took the liberty of naming it. I'm sure I did not make the FA as people have been climbing at this location for 80 years. Please comment if you know the "real" name of this route....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
