DescriptionRing Mountain is a scenic collection of boulders in the Marin Headlands, ranging from about 20 to 50 feet in height. They offer a variety of problems and top roped climbing on some interesting rock.
No useful bolts or anchors are present on the rocks. Bring long slings (~40') and nuts to take care of your anchor needs. The rock is friendly on the hands; it's good for sticking small holds. Feet tend to be a bit more slippery. The rock at Turtle Rock is schist and somewhat reminiscent Rumney, NH.
Access is free and the area is open from sunrise to sunset.
Getting ThereTo get there, exit at Paradise Drive from the 101 freeway a few exits south from where it meets the 580.
At the off ramps, drive a short distance east, towards the Bay. On Google Maps this shows as Tamalpais Drive.
Paradise Road is the very first possible right hand turn, and comes before the traffic light.
Follow Paradise Drive as it winds south and east for around 2 miles.
Turn right onto Taylor Road, and follow it to its end.
Park your vehicle here.
At the parking lot there are two paved paths leading into the hills. Walking uphill and to the left will bring you to Split Rock. Walking uphill and to the right will bring you to Turtle Rock.
