On a V2 problem on the Crack Face of Pacific Stree...

Description 

This former granite quarry that is now a community park has several 15-25 foot high boulders with a variety of problems ranging from V0 to V8+. A decent amount of shade makes climbing possible even on moderately hot days, but since this is the Central Valley you might want to limit your summer climbing here to mornings. Despite traffic noise from the nearby street, it's actually a nice little park. Some parts of it are pretty badly trashed, but the more open areas are clean and many of the boulders have flat landing areas.

Getting There 

From I-80 about 20 miles east of Sacramento, take exit 108 for Rocklin Road. Head west a little under a mile and turn left on Pacific St. The park is on the right about 1/4 mile down just after Rocklin Rock and just before the Goodyear Tire store. Parking can be found on Farron (1st R turn after the park), or if you have high clearance you could drive back along the train tracks to the back side of the park. If you are discreet and/or want to ask nicely, you could probably get away with parking behind Goodyear.

Hey I think I left my climbing helmet at Deer Creek Park. On 3/10/13. It's a white Petzl Vertex Vent with stickers all over it . A climb sticker on the back, rocknasium sticker on top and port and starboard on the sides. In the helmet there is a sticker with my contact information. If you find it please contact me on mountainproject, or contact me with the info on the sticker. I will give a reward for anyone who returns it. Thanks

Probably about 50 worth while problems here. Nice after work evening sessions to be had. Only real local Sacramento bouldering area. Leave it cleaner than when you get there, and discourage anyone breaking glass!! And damaging holds for that matter! A lot of the classic hard problems are coming up with altered holds. Unacceptable.

Props to the city and the rotary club for putting mulch down adding a garbage can and a plaque stating the significance of this quarry.
