Bay Area Bouldering, California, USA


Approach time: 5-10 minutes
Season: Year Round
Number of problems: 10
Type of rock: Schist
Overview

Views of Point Reyes and Bodega Head, surfing The Shark Pit at the mouth of Tomales Bay, and the unique slot pocketed schist boulders on the quiet north end of Dillon Beach make the out of the way drive worth it. The large boulder with the rusty old bolt ladder known as the Stud Ladder is the main spot. The wall that faces away from the ocean with the Stud Ladder also has the classic Dillon Beach Traverse (V3) and a lot of good up problems, all of which down climb the slabby 5.7R/X south east arÍte. The west (ocean) side of the main boulder has a few new highball problems just established during the making of this guide. The landing under the west face is so rocky that two to three pads and one spotter is the minimum to be safe and even then thatís only with the hang and drop finishes. With the V0x topouts no amount of pads or spotters will save you.
