About the only climbable rock in this part of the world. Has an awesome swimming hole, complete with rope swing and rock jump, just past the bend downstream (south).
The more extensive South Boulders offer the best bouldering and one bolted route (5.10a) on water polished boulders that have calved off Squaw Rock proper. Most of the problems have generally good landings though a mat is still recommended.
The smaller (and mostly worthless) North Boulders are on the 101 side of the river, just north of the main cliff. They have mostly bad landings, even with a mat.
This place gets hot in summer, so the best times to visit are late fall and into winter (but before too much rain has fallen - otherwise the river gets harder to cross).
Park in any of the turnouts on the river side of 101, then head down to the river. For the South Boulders, carefully cross the river on seasonally shifting sandbars (note: may not be safe in spring).
Where to stay
Several good campgrounds near Cloverdale. There's also a family-friendly KOA in Asti (5 miles south of Cloverdale).
