Santa Cruz is home to several unofficial bouldering and climbing spots located throughout campus. If you have never been to one them before definitely try to get someone who has been there before to lead you through the woods.

Getting There 

Approach time varies from where you are on campus but most are within 15-20 mins of Bay Tree.
