DescriptionThis Bouldering area is the best close-in bouldering area in the bay. Located just west of the parking area, it's a pretty easy walk from the parking area.
Offering nearly 360 degrees of overhung bouldering fun, this rock reaches 20 feet high in some places, and offers moves of all variety. Some people choose to top rope the highest section, as it's a fairly long drop to the ground from high up on the rock.
All routes can be walked off, as one side of the rock runs into the gentle hillside.
Getting ThereFrom the main parking area, walk through the rightside gate and go up the paved road past the large pink mansion that was recently built. The pavement will end and the top of meatball rock will just out of the trees 50 feet right of the path. Continue on a smoothly graded gravel path that will take you up to the crest of the hill. From the crest, there is a large right offshoot, which you should take. This will head gently downhill to Turtle Rock, which is another 200 yards further.
