While on the hunt for a specific spot we had a giant list of unchecked east bay creeks to work through. Here are some highlights of mixed creeks.

Named this spot after the self-titled Musk piece here. Unfortunately I was late to the game on this one and the bottom half of musk was lost…

Beach Pipes

Beach Pipes

I’ve known about this spots location and have been wanting to check it out for awhile. The outside is easy to check out, and probably familiar to people who walk their dogs on the beach. But what’s inside is whats … Continue reading

Abandoned Sky Scraper

Abandoned Sky Scraper

I happened upon this building during a near-by adventure and noticed it was abandoned. Later, when driving by I noticed hand-styles in the windows. IT HAD TO BE DONE. Unfortunately it was locked super-tight when we arrived to check it … Continue reading

Mummies on the Mountain

Mummies on the Mountain

This was a revisit to Mountaintop Fun, because we had heard that Musk visited since our last trip. We had to come back and capture the new mummies.

Creek and Wall

Creek and Wall

We started this spot by following a long freeway wall, which eventually merged into a creek with a handful of underpasses. Though each underpass could be considered a spot in it’s own right, I combined them into one creek for … Continue reading

Behind the Office

Titanium Walls

The easiest way to get to this creek bridge is by ducking through an office buildings parking lot, climbing a fence, and dropping down into the creek. Of course, keep an eye for the cop or the security that likes … Continue reading

When I met up with Musk to purchase a piece from him, he had this comic book to show me. I didn’t get to keep a copy, but he let me snap some photos. Now I present to the world: … Continue reading

The Holy Grail Drain

The Holy Grail Drain

This spot has been on the top of the to-do list for quite some time. It took us embarrassingly long to actually find it, however. In fact, we found many other creek spots during our exhaustive hunt. Besides the obvious … Continue reading

Treasure in the Cuts

Treasure in the Cuts

This yard was hard to get to – no easy parking, and the only ways to get to it are pretty treacherous. I’m surprised at how well painted this place is, since it’s somewhat remote and difficult to get to. … Continue reading

Boy Scouts Camp

Boy Scouts Camp

I really enjoyed this spot. It’s a nice setting change from your typical urban ex, tucked away in the forest. Of course, it’s down sides were pretty gross. We heard rats(?) running in the ceiling above us, and some places … Continue reading

336 Rooms

336 Rooms

With four floors, 6 halls, 14 rooms per hall, this building had over 336 rooms. It’s shaped like a giant Asterisk, and is one hell of an urban exploration. The icing on the cake is the huge amount of classic, … Continue reading

Tripple 'Rafa

Tripple ‘Rafa

For lack of a better name, I clearly titled this one after the piece that sticks out to me most. A rare, classic, Girafa. But that’s not all that’s there, you’ll also find a couple Musks, a couple Oracles, a … Continue reading

The Pits

The Pits

Apparently this land was once owned by a gravel company. The company excavated several giant craters in the middle of nowhere, before shutting down their operation. The locals have named this one “The Pits.” It’s now become an oasis of … Continue reading

Girafa Bone Tracks

Girafa Bone Tracks

We discovered this stretch of tracks as we were following a lead to a classic Girafa Neck-bone piece.

Covered Bunker

Covered Bunker

This was a similar bunker to those from the hills we visited earlier, but this one was miles away and strangely covered in some kind of woven spread. Perhaps the city wanted to hide these, so they covered them with … Continue reading

This was a quick little yard I found. It features a handful of Musks, a large CCTV piece, among others.

We weren’t planing on finding this place, but it was a nice bonus surprise to stumble on.

DIY Skatepark Revisit

Last time we visited this homemade skatepark, it was winter and the park was flooded. We revisited this summer after learning that Girafa had put up some new work there.

Two Tunnels

One tunnel seems to be a naturally formed cave, which is followed by a gap of open skies and a second, man made concrete tunnel. The latter tunnel is coated with decent graffiti, though the piece that we were looking … Continue reading

This SJ Bridge surprised us with a Musk!

CCTV under the Freeway

CCTV under the Freeway

After months of searching, we finally nailed down this location on the map. We had seen pics of the awesome Girafa, Musk, CCTV, and Phase rollers down here. This spot seems to remain elusive for many writers, as the quality … Continue reading

This classic style train bridge was homed to a Swampy, a Gats, a Musk, a few Girafa Sigs as well as many other interesting writers.

Crawl In Warehouse

Crawl-In Warehouse

This warehouse was vast, but mostly empty inside. We had to toss our back pack in and crawl under a narrow gap to get inside, but it wasn’t too difficult. Inside there wasn’t much graffiti, but the peices that were … Continue reading

Satellite Building

Satellite Building

This epic building had a giant satellite dish on the roof, hence the nickname. Inside was an amazing gallery of the Bay Area’s best graffiti artists, including Girafa, Plantrees, Musk, Swampy, 7SEAS, RODI and many more! Entering this one was … Continue reading
