Containing mostly easier climbs (5.3 - 5.11b), Mt. Tamalpais is a great place to teach someone how to climb, set up a top rope, or a great place for a first trad lead.
The climbing primarily faces east, and offers incredible views of the rest of the bay area. Because of it's direction, you will find most of the climbing in the shade in the afternoon. If you're going to be there a while, don't forget to head up to the observation tower for an incredible Pacific sunset.
Due to the rugged nature of the rock, it's probably best to either walk off most climbs, or to rappell from the top.
Depending on the day, you may have to pay $8 to park in the park, but then again, you might not.
Always check the Mount Tamalpais State Park website for current information.
Head 1.4 miles up Pan Toll Road, and then head right on East Ridgecrest Blvd, once again following the signs to Mt. Tamalpia's East Summit. The parking lot will be at the end of the road, 2.8 miles later. *Google Maps might tell you Pan Toll Road is closed, because it is only open 7 AM to sunset.*
All climbing is accessed via the Plank trail, which will have a sign stating .3 miles to the observation tower.
