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.
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.

This makes the route popular for those who are looking to train their heads more than those looking to pull down hard. No moves harder than 5.9...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
