The Ogre is a large granite formation dominating the upper skyline of Castle Crags State Park. The nearly 1000' East face resembles the face of an Ogre and this is where it gets its name. Most of the established routes climb the longest section of the East face following weakknesses and dykes. They are all multi-pitch trad affairs involving considerable run-outs. The routes range from 5.6 to 5.10d.Standard descent from the summit involves two raps down the North East face into a gully which leads back to the base of the East face. The 1st rap is via bolts on the summit and requires a 200' rope. The second rap is off a tree. Walk down and right to retrieve gear.
Getting There [Edit]
Follow the Castle Dome trail to Castle Dome's left flank and continue up and left along the ridge line to the Ogre (stay on the crest to avoid bushes.
