Description

Simply a slew of scattered scampers on the southern slopes of Shasta.

These are volcanic boulders ranging from about 8 to 40 feet. The climbing is varied and moderates abound. Some actual roped route development went on starting in the 1990s by Shaun Moore, who is still in the area. It has close to 50 short bolted lines from 5.0 to 5.14 with more in the making, and also a lifetime of bouldering first ascents.

The landings are works-in-progress in most places, as are the problems. They are subject to hold breakage and hollow/creaking sounds. In my limited sampling of other area rock, this would be one of the best potential spots for destination climbing (bouldering).

Getting There

From I-5: Take the Central Mt Shasta Exit. Continue through town (two stop-lights) on Lake Street. Lake makes a long left curve and turns into Everett Memorial Highway (leading up to the mountain trailheads). Between mile markers 7 and 8 take a left on a dirt road that descends down a hill and traverses the mountain north until it dead ends. Walk north or up the mountain on climber trails. Enjoy! Don't get lost.
