  • Indian Rock Park is not a "must see" of Berkeley or the Bay Area but it is a nice departure from the sea of houses surrounding it. It features some very pick rock outcroppings with good grips so young...  more »

  • Great for beginner bouldering. I was really proud of myself for climbing four(!) really tough routes multiple times, but after I went home and looking them up in a book all four routes were V0. Ha... Some locals have been climbing here since childhood. One guy is here every day, and he'll be happy to give you beta while downclimbing a V8 one-handed with a bong in his other hand.
  • Great views. Nice location. A little crowded. The rocks are well worn from climbing.
  • Nice bit of nature in the middle of suburbs. Had steps carved in some places, so easy to climb up one of the giant rocks. Great view at the top. Interesting little cave in one area. Had a water fountain and bench nearby too
  • Fun little local boulder spot, with Indian Rock and Mortar Rock offering a surprisingly wide variety of climbs for such a small area. Bring your toughest finger skin for Mortar rock, that place will shred you hard.
  • Cool rock with decent enough street parking. Amazing views of the bay/golden gate from residential North Berkeley neighborhood. Good for picnic, but it can get crowded.
