DescriptionThis bouldering area is located inside the city of San Francisco in Glen Canyon park, this offers the best and most varied bouldering in the city.
There are also several top rope possibilities, though for most options you should bring slings and trad gear. A few bolts do exist, but there are not enough to consider this a top-roping area.
