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.
From the I-5 take CA299 east toward Burney. Burney Limestone is 26 miles outside of Redding. First you will pass a pretty large limestone outcropping, this is not it. The road is primarily S turns, but after a large S turn, you will see a paved pullout on the right side of the road accompanied by a Highway Information sign with lights on top. There is a small gravel pullout just beyond this on the right hand side of the road and a small trail on the left side of the road, (across the road) heading up a steep hill into the forest. This is the approach trail. The trail is very small and not well marked,(look for a 5'tall rock outcropping) but it is there and takes you right into The Shredding. You'll know you passed it if you see a large limestone wall on the left. This is the wall know as The Pachyderm Wall aka The Sunshine Wall. Cross the road with caution, it is a highway, vehicles come around the corner at high speed.
