DescriptionThis west facing rock area features wind-eroded basalt rock. There is easy access to the top of both rocks, each with top rope anchors. A rope will lead you to the top of one rock while a short trail will lead you to the top of the other. There are a few short routes, but you can enjoy an afternoon climbing into the sunset.
There is an expansive view from the rocks. It offers a view over Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, Emeryville, Richmond, Oakland, the bay bridges to SF, SF and Treasure Island. Pairing a climb around sunset makes for a fun time.
There are a few issues to deal with: the amount of graffiti and broken glass near the bottom along with the presence of stoners. The graffiti paint makes holds very slick and the broken glass can stick to climbing shoes. You may also run into kids getting high in the small caves housed in the rock.
