The route.

Description 

The Hillcrest boulders are home to some of the largest features and most classic routes at the Nut Tree Boulders. Unfortunately it's also one of the most spread out areas requiring some effort when jumping from rock to rock. Not to worry though, as boulders dot the entire trail and hillside all the way from Scotts Rock near the road to the Mother Boulder at the very peak of the tallest hill.

There is something for everyone here from classic V0's to the areas current hardest and most classic problem (Scotts Traverse) coming in at a very stout and sustained V9. Highballs, overhangs, cracks, traverses and pumpy face routes. This area has it all and more than enough climbing to keep you coming back no matter what your abilities.


Getting There 

The area is accessible by approaching from either the Boxcar Woody Boulders or the more popular approach from Hillcrest Cir, from which they get their name.

Keeping a cool head sans pad on Mother Nature.

Mother Nature V1 5 CA : Sacramento Valley/Foothills : ... : Mother Boulder
Mother Nature climbs up an astheticly pleasing arete on giant square cut holds, pockets and crimps with a thought provoking topout high above the dirt. Which has sent more than one climber, highly confident in climbing V1 boulder problems on a despirate retreat. There is a sit start which adds a couple of very powerful, thin moves of V4 to the start for a more challanging approach. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
