DescriptionBeeks Bight parking lot in the Granite Bay section on the west shore of Folsom Lake.
Two boulder clusters with obvious established problems (including chalk marks) are just off the trail to the left. I noticed these while trail running here and grabbed my climbing shoes from the car. A three boulder cluster had cracks of varying widths to practice on, and could be traversed easily for laps. As I was leaving a local with a pad started working on the other boulder, but I didn't think to ask him what they were called.
There is a good v2/3 problem on the front side of boulder climbers right when facing the main boulder, and some good sit-start roof problems in the short cavey boulders just out of the parking lot. There is potential for more problems on the trail into Beeks if you are willing to do a lot a poison oak removal.
Getting TherePaid/Folsom Lake SRA annual member approach
Drive in the Granite Bay entrance of Folsom Lake SRA, paying the entrance fee there. Follow the signs to Beeks Bight parking lot. From the lot, walk north on a single track trail, and follow forks north then northeast for 5 or 10 minutes.
There are several free public parking areas with approaches of a couple of miles.
Note that the old Twin Rock Road park and hike is now closed to - and excessively signed against - public parking.
