Description 

Squirrel Rock is a smaller 60' high formation located at the southeast toe of Upper Walts Rock on Queen Mountain. Home to a few decent bolted routes, but not really a destination crag by itself. Notable climbs here include One Nut Needed (5.10b), Searching for Nuts (5.10b), and the nearby Escape to Queen Mountain (5.10a). All routes face south/west and get plenty of sun. An easy descent is made from all routes by a shared bolted rappel anchor.


Getting There 

Follow the trail up Queen Mountain as per Upper Walt's Rock. ~2 miles plus lotsa uphill. If you are standing at the base of White Rain or Crack Queen on the right side of Upper Walt's, Squirrel Rock is basically located 20 yards behind you and slightly downhill.

This fantastic line is actually located on a long buttress of rock about 50 yards to the east of Squirrel Rock/Upper Walt's Rock. The route more-or-less follows the blunt southern arÍte of the formation. This long and varied pitch starts with a finger crack followed by a short face crux past a bolt. A right-facing corner is then gained, eventually stepping out right onto airy and exposed face past 3 more bolts on the final headwall. There is some loose stuff on the upper half, probably due to la...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
