Join the Bay Area Climbers Coalition for conservation work at Indian and Mortar Rock in the Berkeley Hills. Activities will include adding new wood chips to the Pit, graffiti and trash removal as well as other efforts to improve one of our busiest and most treasured local crags. This is a great opportunity to give back to some of the East Bay’s finest bouldering! Bring your crash pads for some post-cleanup climbing.
Location: Indian Rock is located up in the Berkeley Hills. The Mountain Project website provides a great overview and directions. Carpooling is a great option since parking is limited, please be respectful of neighbor’s driveways.
