Ring Mountain is a scenic collection of boulders in the Marin Headlands. The boulders range from about 20-50', offering a variety of bouldering and toprope climbing on some really interesting rock.No useful bolts or anchors are present on the rocks.

To get there, exit at Paradise Dr from the 101 freeway a few exits south from where it meets the 580. Turn left at the bottom of the exit ramp, travel one block where Paradise branches off to the right. Follow Paradise Dr. east for about 2 miles.Turn right onto Taylor Rd, and follow it until it ends. A trail leads uphill; follow it to approach Split Rock.
