Folsom Bouldering Rock Climbing
Bouldering along a scenic stretch of the American River in the city of Folsom, between Rainbow Bridge and the dam.
The main spot that I know of firsthand are short easy routes next to Rainbow Bridge, on its northwest side, not exactly deep water soloing, more like shallow water soloing.
Mind that infamous Folsom Prison if you go too far upstream on the south bank.
Speaking of which, here is a link to a vaguely informative video of climbing Folsom Prison Rock
Old Folsom area from the 50 freeway, the light rail line during certain hours, or on surface streets; then walk in.
Climbing Season For the Highway 50 Corridor area.
Weather station 0.4 miles from here

Funny convergence, I saw someone took my bait and added another Folsom bouldering spot here, while on social media an unrelated friend is climbing at Rainbow Bridge this evening.
