A warning to anybody thinking of coming to Goat rock on Saturday, September 20th, 2014. There will be a massive swarm of new Cal students looking to get on the easy top ropes that will be set up all day, and will be lapped. All day. We will try and be as accommodating as possible, but with a group this large, even our best can't be enough.
So this is both a warning and an apology.

|Don't leave climbing gear in the car (or at least in sight). Had a friend lose several thousand dollars of gear from car break-in while they were out bouldering for a couple of hours in mid day.|

|I think it's Goat Rock State Beach, not Goat Rock State Park.|

Just to clarify: "Goat Rock Beach" lies within "Sonoma Coast State Park," (formerly known as Sonoma Coast State Beach) The park stretches from Bodega Head to Meyers Grade and includes Pomo Canyon and the Willow Creek Watershed (excellent mountain biking).
Climbers have been under a microscope here from time to time and future access could be threatened if certain paleontological theories about mammoth rubbings are substantiated. Please be an ambassador for the climbing community by respecting other visitor's experiences at the rocks.
If the Admins were feeling shnazzy they would reformulate this area as Sonoma Coast State Park, with the various individual crags under its heading. Sunset Boulders, Twin Coves, Super Slab and Dry Creek Sea Crag, along with Pomo Canyon and Marshall Gulch, are all within this one park.

|You can save a few minutes of driving from the listed directions by taking the Railroad Ave exit from the 101 North in Petaluma. Turn left onto Railroad ave, then right on Stony Point Road. Continue on Stony Point for about 2 miles and then turn left onto Roblar Road. Drive on Roblar Road for about 6.5 miles and then turn right at the intersection with Valley Ford road. From there you are on the same route as the posted directions.|
