  • Yes, Indian Rock park bring me back to my high school days climbing on these rocks with all my rock climbing friends. Bouldering is what we called it opposed to buildering, when we climbed on al...  read more »
  • To get up to Indian Rock Park is a bit of a steep hike but well worth the exercise to see amazing views of San Francisco and the east bay below you on a clear day. 
  • Climb up the rocks for one of the best views of the sunset at San Francisco Bay. Nice friendly community atmosphere on top of a huge rock formation. 
  • The whole "park" is a giant rock. There are two main routes to get up: one is basically just a flight of stairs, the other is only marginally more challenging. There's also opportunity for bouldering your own route. Once you get up, you'll enjoy incredible panoramic views of the entire Bay -- really some of the best views in all of Berkeley!). But you will NOT be alone. Don't come here expecting solitude: there are ALWAYS people on the rock. Usually some pot-smokers, some cheeseboard pizza picnic-ers, and some tourists (sometimes all three in one!).
  • Nothing but fun. Some climbs require gear and/or a belay. Lots of free climbing routes. Bring your shoes and chalk bag.
  • If you're looking to climb up a large rock in Berkeley (via mostly stairs -- not something that requires athleticism), then this is the rock for you. To the rock's credit, when you reach the top, there is a surprisingly excellent view of the bay and the city. It's now a Berkeley tourist stop when I have friends in the area. Well done, rock.
  • Can get good views from the top of Berkeley hill towards the Bay. It is cloudy half the time which again adds to a pleasant hilly weather :)
  • Totally a fun place to checkout. I think it would be great if someone organized a group game of tag/hide and seek here.
