Description

One of the many high-quality North Berkeley rocks. Climbs range from 15 to 30 feet and are usually top roped. Due to the humid climate, moss is an issue here, and can obstruct usable holds.

Getting There

Exit 80 and head east from the Buchanan St / Albany exit. go 3 blocks, and take the soft right onto Marin ave. Follow the road up the hill to the traffic circle. Go around the circle and stay on Marin, which will be the fourth turn. Take a right on Hildale, then a left on Poppy Lane. Remillard park will be on the right.

I live in the area but had never climbed here, so 3 months ago I took a jog up to the park and managed to get poison oak. Today I went back to see where I might have gotten it and the only place it might be is a small shrub in the 5.2 chimney/scramble or whatever it is to get to the top to set anchors. I didn't climb up to verify if it was poison oak given that I darn near fell off when scrambling up there last time in my running shoes, but I recommend someone be careful / check if it is poison oak before brushing past it when they climb here next. If someone checks please leave a comment for the next people. Poison oak sucks. It's rather itchy if you haven't heard. Jul 1, 2017

I lost my watch here 10/26/2016 if anyone finds it. Oct 31, 2016
Found some gear here by the picnic table in the morning on 6/17/16. If you can describe it to me I'd love to return it to its rightful owner. Thanks! Jun 17, 2016

Great for beginners, easy top rope setup. Surprising number of routes, climbed Friday 5/17 after Cragmont next door got too crowded, and were the only ones there other than some boulderers.

Free solo with a spotter on the 5.2 to get up and set up an achor, you need slings as one anchor point is just a pipe, and the other is a standard bolt. The anchor points are also placed significantly back from the edge, so you'll want to run slings to set up your quad or whatever at the edge to prevent rope drag and damage to the rock.

We climbed a 5.7, 5.9, and 5.10 from the same anchor, was a blast. Ended up forgetting our quad/carabiners/slings up top, came back Saturday 5/18 in the evening and they were gone. If you got them, get ahold of me and I'll slip you a $20.

Don't forget to walk around the back for some nice bouldering! May 20, 2013
