BETA PHOTO: Old Peculiar from Pacific Crest Trail turn-off.


Old Peculiar is a 40 foot granite cliff. The rock is good and there is both sport and trad, but anything can be toproped too. Most of the climbing is less than vertical, but everything harder than a 9 will include an overhanging section.

Getting There 

From the Echo Lake Marina parking lot walk right of the lake onto the breakwater then across a small metal walk-bridge. There you will see a Pacific Crest Trail information sign. Walk right of the sign and wind leftwards up a small hill. Follow the trail as it traces the northern until you reach the end of the lake. There, the trail will turn left around the lake and Old Peculiar will be about 200 feet uphill to the right of the trail. If you continue west on a fainter trail for another 200 feet you will find the easiest path up to the crag.

After pulling the roof, there's about 15 feet of 5.8 or 9 crack climbing. After the crack you're left with a steep face before the climbing lets off as you gain...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
