Description

Nearly 10 short sport routes climb vertical-to-slightly-overhanging face between and around giant blocks just northwest from the lookout. The base provides somewhat flat and shady, forested area, especially nice during hot temps.

Getting There

8 min. The Meth Lab sits just northwest and downhill from the lookout parking. Hike 100 meters up a faint trail that ascends between two rocky peaks northwest of the parking. Walk down and right through large rocks and talus to the northern side of the giant blocks.

I'll let Dan do the honor of adding routes, but I climbed some of the sport routes at the Meth Lab today and they are very high quality routes. Jul 1, 2013

After moving to the area in February, I finally made it out here.
It does exist!The routes are all 5.10 and harder.
I (think I) found the two listed routes on this page. The 5.10a seemed a little stiff, especially for an onsight. There are some cool looking routes inside of the corridor between the blocks. I onsighted the route on the right side as you walk in the corridor from the uphill entrance. It felt like 5.10+. A couple of really delicate moves on pretty small holds. The route that ascends the sharp arete on the block that splits the corridor looks fantastic and HARD. It could use some cleaning before a send. Lots of lichen and moss seemed to have covered up crucial foot holds. Anyone out there have any beta on this route or the rest of the routes in the area?

I'm always looking for partners in the Plumas area. Hit me up! Jul 5, 2015
