Ring Mountain - Bouldering

Changing the focus of this meetup a little bit:

Let's boulder at Ring Mountain. The roped climbs there are uninspiring (30 ft high and nothing special) and a pain to set up (gear anchors that don't work in different directions so they'd need to be adjusted for different climbs). On the other hand the boulder problems on Turtle Rock make for a fun late morning workout session.

The problems range from V0- to V4-5, mostly in V0 to V2 range. There's slab, face and overhanging ones to pick from, a total of 15-20 problems, so I don't think anyone would be bored. Info on mountainproject and rockclimbing.com is a bit scarce, but guidebooks provide good beta.

What to bring:

• Shoes

• Crashpad if you have one

• Water (it can get very hot)

Directions:
From the 101 in the North Bay - exit Tamalpais Dr/Paradise Dr and turn east at the off ramp. First right is Paradise Dr. Take that for a while, and turn right on Taylor. Parking is on Taylor.
Latitude, Longitude:[masked], [masked]

In front of you will be Split Rock. To get to Turtle Rock, take the right hand path past the last fancy house and keep going for a few hundred feet until the the path turns left and there's a trail going off of it to the right. Take the trail, head up that until you see turtle rock.

    Is this still on for Saturday? And if so, is there anyone I can borrow shoes from? I left my gear back in jersey temporarily. Also I have a car and would be willing to carpool if anyone needs a ride

      Thanks for the update Michael. I'm cool with this being pushed back to a future session if no one can lead for Saturday.

    Any chance we can do it on Sunday instead? Not a huge deal but would have to choose between this and another climb and would prefer to do both :)

      I can make a repeat session the following week. Sorry I won't be able to make this week though...

      If I hear you all correctly can we push this back to next Sat or Sun (Oct 12 or 13)?

    I will bring my pad, and I can bring a rope, though I don't know if I have enough gear to build anchors here (cams seem useful for anchors on split rock and I only have nuts and hexes at the moment).

    I will be happy to bring my crash pad and gear!
