Indian Rock (South Bay) Adopt-A-Crag: Coming Up May 20, 2017!

Join the Bay Area Climbers Coalition in partnership with Sanborn/Santa Clara County Parks department to take on some needed cleaning and maintenance around Indian Rock South Bay.  We will be cleaning up glass and trash, doing trail and rock stair maintenance, and removing graffiti.

Location:  Indian Rock is located in Saratoga.  A full description and detailed directions can be found on its Mountain Project website.  It can be confusing to find when going there the first time, so be sure to check a map before you head out.  Please note that Skyline is currently closed south of Indian Rock and Castle Rock.

We have found the easiest way to get to Indian Rock is the following:

  1. From CA-85, exit Saratoga Ave and head west
  2. Continue on Saratoga Ave; it will become CA State Route 9
  3. Follow CA State Route 9 up the mountain. The first stop sign you get to is CA-35; turn left.
  4. Follow CA-35 for about 2.5 miles.  You will see Castle Rock State Park on your right; go about 100 feet further, and you will see Indian Rock on your left.

Date:  May 20, 2017
Time:  10:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.
How To Join:  Sign up on Eventbrite!


Food – Delicious lunch will be provided as well as snacks to keep you fueled for the day!

Water – We will have water available. If you have a water bottle, please feel free to bring it with you.

Tools – We will provide tools and gloves–please be sure to wear long pants and close-toed shoes.

Climbing – The plan is to end the event around 1 pm to allow enough time for everyone to go climbing together!  Indian Rock is one of the premier Bay Area crags with amazing bouldering, top rope, and sport climbs. Many climbers know it as home to some of the best boulder problems in the greater Castle Rock/Sanborn County area. Feel free to bring your own gear for some post-event crushing at Castle Rock State Park, Indian Rock, or another of the many crags in the area.

We greatly appreciate the support from Planet Granite-Sunnyvale and Access Fund for this Adopt-A-Crag!
