Climb a slick 45ft wall with routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.12. You can top rope this spot. 

Beaver Street Wall is one of the few places to climb in the San Francisco city limits. The 45 ft. tall wall is located in the Corona Heights neighborhood, just north west of Market St. The routes on the wall range from 5.8 to 5.12. The wall features a prominent crack up the center, which makes this area climbable. The rest of the rock is very smooth and hard, making it a difficult climb. There are chains above the main crack in the center of the wall. These chains are attached to the chain-link fence at the top of the wall, which is anchored in a cement block. To reach the chains, either lead climb the wall or climb up the 5.2 edge of the wall on the Beaver St side to a footpath, which leads to the chains. There are 4 main routes to the center crack in the wall. The easiest is straight up the middle and is a 5.9 and has crimps near the bottom. To the left is a 5.10a, which has a crack running straight up to the middle crack for 15ft followed by a 5.8 to the main crack. Two paths to the right of the main crack are more difficult at 5.10d and 5.11b respectively. Keep in mind that to climb Beaver Street, the weather needs to be dry, so you should wait for it to dry out if it's been raining or foggy.

Great climb, start early to beat the "crowds" (there are only 2 routes and they merge half way up) Also -- they used my photo for the cover... ha
