Frank Rollo’s Walking Tour of Telegraph Hill and San Francisco’s waterfront

Frank Rollo is a San Francisco treasure, a geotechnical engineer with fascinating tales of San Francisco’s slides, settlement, slips, quarries, faults and fractures. Don’t miss Frank’s walking tour around the base of the Telegraph Hill and the nearby waterfront area, perhaps climbing the Filbert or Greenwich Steps. Keep an eye out for falling rocks and wild parrots!
