Golden State Bouldering is a comprehensive guide to the greater Bay Area of California, with information on the outdoor bouldering around San Francisco, Sacramento, Santa Rosa, and Santa Cruz. This guide describes 1,600 boulder problems with hundreds of color photos, maps, GPS coordinates, and hand-drawn illustrations. Golden State Bouldering has a philosophical twist, exploring the ways in which climbing can be among the most meaningful parts of our lives. Whether you are new to climbing or an old-school veteran, Moore and Joslin draw on decades of experience to describe the unique magic of Bay Area climbing.

Golden State Bouldering

  • “I started climbing in the Bay Area, and twenty years later, it is still one of my favorite places. Golden State Bouldering is the guide I always wish I had. This book represents a lifetime of passion and dedication by locals to develop these pristine areas. New climbers can use it to transition from the gym to the crag, and long-term climbers will learn something new about the local areas they already love.”

    Kevin Jorgeson, Professional Climber


    “The California coast is like a dream to me. I love being by the water, and it feels surreal to climb on boulders directly on a beach. Whenever I get frustrated or just need a break, I can always get in the water for a bit. With dozens of maps and hundreds of photos, Golden State Bouldering has all the information you need to have this type of experience for yourself.”

    Meagan Martin, Professional Climber & Ninja Warrior Champion


    “What you hold in your hands is a love letter to Bay Area bouldering. This guide has been expertly crafted through a lifetime of experience and years of research. As you read through these pages, don’t forget to look for opportunities to honor and protect our amazing climbing areas.”

    Peter Monks, President of the Bay Area Climbers Coalition
