Description

A quite impressive line of walls and buttresses that unfortunately doesn't quite "work". Toilet Mind being the one exception (assuming the poison oak hasn't regrown).

Access issues

For all access issues, please contact the Bay Area Climbers Coalition.

SF Rec & Park land.

At times climbers have been told the area is private property and off limits to climbing. This is untrue however - the cliffs are within a recognised natural area that's managed by SF Rec & Park (see http://sfrecpark.org/destination/rock-outcropping-natural-areas/).

The dirt area in front of Toilet Mind has recently been planted with native plants. Please take extreme care not to step on, put gear on, or otherwise damage the plants. That's the kind of thing that really antagonizes local residents and land managers.

Approach

Park on 14th Ave, just south of Ortega St. Take care not to obstruct any driveways - the road is very narrow.

The line below the bolt (bring gear including long slings to back it up). Looks about 5.9ish.

The prominent arete in the middle of the cliffline. Has a manky piton toprope anchor - bring gear and slings to back it up. The start has a tendency to get overgrown with poison oak.
