Description 

Simply, slews of scattered scampers on the southern slopes of Shasta.

These are volcanic boulders ranging from about 8 to 40 feet. The climbing is varied and moderates abound. Some actual roped route developement went on in years past by a local who is still in the area.

The landings are works-in-progress in most places, as are the problems. They are subject to hold breakage and hollow/creaking sounds. In my limited sampling of other area rock, this would be one of the best potential spots for destination climbing (bouldering).


Getting There 

From I-5: Take the Central Mt Shasta Exit. Continue through town (two stop-lights) on Lake Street. Lake makes a long left curve and turns into Everett Memorial Highway (leading up to the mountain trailheads). Between mile markers 7 and 8 take a left on a dirt road that descends down a hill and traverses the mountain north until it dead ends. Walk north or up the mountain on climber trails. Enjoy! Don't get lost.

Depicting bolts and anchors that we found at the first bolted area on the trail to 8-Mile Boulders. Lots of choices of climbs, not sure about the difficulty however.

Pretty accurate description, however I would add that 8 Mile Boulders is a Mecca of bouldering awaiting the right motivated crew to give it the Love and attention it deserves. Sean Moore originally developed the area in the 90's and saw the area's potential, however like many of the Shasta area Crags due to lack of local rock climbers, much of Sean's work was in vain and now the area is need of love once again.
