This 40' sandstone rock sits just west of Indian Rock, and shares many of its characteristics. First off, there's a lot of moss on the less-travelled climbs. There's both sport and trad, with top-rope potential as well. Until someone takes the time to clean off the moss, I wouldn't recommend doing any climbs besides the popular Baby Fat. Also, bring bug spray or some kind of zen that has the same affect.

Getting There 

From the free parking outside of Castle Rock State Park, go across the street and into the parking lot for Sanborn-Skyline County Park. There you will see a wooden sign instructing you to go straight 0.1 miles to Indian Rock. The actual trail goes sort of straight and left. The Globule is directly behind Indian Rock as you approach, and you can get there by walking around either side of Indian Rock.

The only bolted climb on The Globule that faces Indian Rock. The roof is very odd and requires a little resourcefulness, but is still no harder than an .11a once you figure out what you're doing.The rest of the climb takes advantage of the large heucos up the face above....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
