Bay Area Bouldering, California, USA


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

In the rolling hills between I-280 and US-101 near Redwood City are the Farm Hill Boulders and Handley Rock. The main highball face of the Farm Hill Boulder can be seen right off the road and has a couple good arętes, a fun face and a short, tough traverse. On the hill behind the main face are a couple smaller boulders with a good V0 and a daring V1 over a nasty old mattress. Nearby Handley Rock park is a nice place to check out views of the Bay and do some fun sandstone scrambling, toproping and bouldering.
