Description 

An excellent limestone sport climbing crag, located 26 miles outside of Redding on the way to Burney via the 299. The rock is limestone of pretty good quality, a bit dirty from lack of use but solid.


Getting There 

From the I-5 take CA299 east toward Burney. Burney Limestone is 26 miles outside of Redding, look for a sign that says 24 miles to Redding which will let you know you're getting close. First you will pass a pretty large limestone outcropping, this is not it. After a large S turn, you will see a pullout on the right side of the road, and a small trail on the left side of the road heading up a steep hill into the forest, that is the trail to the Shredding. You'll know you passed it once you see a large limestone wall on the left, this is technically part of Burney Limestone but past the main area.

Spread Eagle 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  CA : Shasta Cascade : ... : The Main Wall
The left most route on the main wall. Pretty mellow first crux passing the second bolt (high ten?) followed by easy but sapping climbing to an excellent crux sequence through the last few bolts. Passing the last bolt involves establishing on a poor crimp knob, a foot adjustment, then tossing 6 inches further to a good sidepull which unfortunately is extremely sharp, its kind of like a serrated blade. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
