Located in the city of San Francisco, this area is part of the San Francisco Parks system, so access is not a concern. You're in San Francisco, so the weather can be wonderful, but is most likely going to be foggy and windy.
This small area holds some interesting climbing on very glasslike rock, that can be quite tough on the hands, and in places almost impossible to smear. On the harder routes, if you can find it a grip, finger hold, nub, anything, you'll probably need it. This crag contains some great balancy moves, despite it's limited number of climbs.
The area holds several climbs that are topropeable, and also several could potentially be climbed trad, though it would be a frightening lead on the tougher routes.
There are chains connected to the fence above to set up an anchor, which can be accessed by walking south on Beaver Street, taking the alley to the right, and following the path behind the tennis courts up the backside of the wall. Do not climb the part of the wall facing the street (the one with the No Climbing sign), the neighbors have complained about rocks falling onto the sidewalk and hitting cars.
2. Up at the top of the staircase at the dead-end on Flint St, there are some tennis courts. There is an obvious trail right there. Follow the trail up and to the right, alongside the fence. Follow the fence. At the top, there is another fence running perpendicular to the one you just followed. That's the fence at the top of the cliff.
3. There is a section of fence that has a double fence. Like a newer, shinier fence installed. That is where the anchor is.
4. There are some chains. I don't know if they are trustworthy or not. You can also build an anchor off the newer fence's cross member.
5. There is STILL a nut stuck in the lower part of the climb. It looks like it's jammed in there pretty hard.
6. You DO NOT need a permit. We called the number on the sign and they said they are taking the sign down, as it was put up by some other department who has a stick up their bum. No permit needed. Climb to your heart's content.
