In the summer of 2022, the US Board of Geographic Names renamed Sq__ Rock as Frog Woman Rock (more details here: doi.gov/pressreleases/inter…).
Located alongside the 101 in Mendocino County, this area may be quite north of the Jenner climbing areas, but in terms of commute time from the bay area, this area is just as close as many of the climbing areas around Jenner.
Next to the Russian River, and just north of the town of Cloverdale, the Frog Woman Cliffs offer some excellent bouldering opportunities, and also a few show lead climbs in the shadow of a large 400 foot cliff, known as Frog Woman Rock.
Most approaches are under 2 minutes, so you're always going to be close to the car, but unfortunately, you're always going to get some highway traffic as well. Additionally (and unfortunately), some approaches will also require you to ford the river, which can be an interesting and exciting proposal.
Head North on the 101 past Santa Rosa, and past the small town of Cloverdale. The main cliff is located in plain view of the highway on the left side, and is the first huge cliff you run inot north of San Francisco. The main pullouts are on either side of the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge, which runs alongside the cliff. The Northern pullout is 5.1 miles from the exit to the 128, which is on the North side of Cloverdale, just inside the Mendocino county border.
