About Nob Hill:

The Urban Jungle. Bums junkies hookers, and a 300 yard wall of large Basalt blocks! Sick Basalt face climbing in the city!
Nearest town or city:
Directions: Pine St. between Powell and Mason
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: Presumably this wall is private property over a public sidewalk. I have never had anyone hassle me doing low traverses and some short problems where I touch the top and drop to the sidewalk. I do not climb over onto the hotel grounds, please dont top out like that it will bring attention to the wall. If hotel security is bored you might even get detained and ticketed by the police for trespass. Please be respectful of pedestrians on the sidewalk, people are going about there lives heading to work and other important errands. Dont block the sidewalk! I have not brought a pad yet, but I think it would be pretty mellow on the south side of the wall which is far from the hotel entrances.
When to Climb: Autumn Spring Summer Winter
Quantity of Climbs: Day
