Brooding Hill is a location on a cliff found on the opposite side of Beach City and the Crystal Temple. From there, one can see a view of all Beach City, the surrounding ocean and beach, and the Crystal Temple.
In "Lars and the Cool Kids", Steven is told that Rose Quartz planted magic moss on the hill, and had tended to it on the hill each spring before she gave up her physical form. Later, Lars and Steven bring the moss-covered Jenny Pizza, Buck Dewey, and Sour Cream to the top of the hill in Jenny's Car. After they reach the top, the sun comes out from the clouds, and the moss blooms into pink blossoms which float down to Beach City below. All five then marvel at the view of Beach City and the blossoms.Ronaldo Fryman atop the hill. After Ronaldo leaves to "get some of" the remains of the Gem Warship, Steven sings "Full Disclosure" atop the hill. Ronaldo later calls this place "the ol' Brooding Hill" on his blog, "Keep Beach City Weird". Crystal Gems were staying.
