The topout of the cave. Also known as 'The Tufa'

  • Stay on marked/established trails to avoid the private homes to the SE. They have been known to be mean to climbers.
  • Trails are closed from sunset to 6:00 am. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Shade until late afternoon. Often dry after a light rain. Often soaked for weeks after a heavy rain.

    Getting There 

    Google Aquarian Valley or Skyline Slabs

    Aquarian Valley/Devils Canyon 

    This small bouldering cave is located in Long Ridge Open Space and offers some of the steepest bouldering in the Bay Area. There are a few routes in the area as well and some large slabs to the north and south. This area is best known for the 'Family of Love' who manufactured STP-LSD at the base of the canyon. This area is also known as 'Devils Canyon' and is sort of a local sercret. Very cool history of the area-Google 'The Land, Black Mountain' if you want some more info on the history.

    There is a LOT of rock in this valley and the valley that runs n/s at the bottom of the Canyon. Go see what you can find!

    Please be mindful of the approach. Climbers have been shot at (with bb's) by homeowners nearby-it's not right, but it is senseless to instigate it also. Don't trespass. Ask about the best approach if you are unsure.

    I feel that this part of the castle rock page of mountain project has unfortunately been trolled pretty hard. The harder problems listed on this page have always been known as projects and as much as I believe there are strong climbers that can send these mystical problems, I don't believe they have been done yet. Rumors are even sharma got shut down by these. So basically I call bull on "Ronald Dregon", and the "v9" to the right of it. I challenge someone to correct me on this.
