Some of the best views in the entire Bay Area can be found on Mt. Tam near the viewpoint on top of the popular East Peak. There are also a few 40-50ft cliff-bands with 3rd and 4th class scrambling and good top-ropes in the 5.0-5.11 range. There are many great bouldering areas all over Mt Tam since a recent surge in development starting about 2005. The mountain now hosts about 125 boulder problems from VB-V9 and counting!
