This former granite quarry that is now a community park has several 15-25 foot high boulders with a variety of problems ranging from V0 to V8+. A decent amount of shade makes climbing possible even on moderately hot days, but since this is the Central Valley you might want to limit your summer climbing here to mornings. Despite traffic noise from the nearby street, it's actually a nice little park. Some parts of it are pretty trashed, but the more open areas are clean and many of the boulders have flat landing areas. Loads of fun, and potential underneath the swampy portion of the quarry.
From I-80 about 20 miles east of Sacramento, take exit 108 for Rocklin Road. Head west a little under a mile and turn left on Pacific St. The park is on the right about 1/4 mile down just after Rocklin Rock and just before the Goodyear Tire store. Parking is permitted at Goodyear as long as there are available spots for the customers. Once you've parked walk to the sidewalk, take a left and continue for 250ft. You can't miss the Pacific Street Wall. Be sure to leave area cleaner than you arrived.
