DescriptionThis area is named for the summit in its midst, Big Bald Rock. Together with Bald Rock Dome, it is part of the Bald Rock areas.
This is an area of rolling granite slabs covered with boulders and some some short cliffs with enough features to do as trad leads or topropes. Problems and routes of a variety of difficulties may be had here. Some of the granite is sharp to the tune of Joshua Tree rock.
A natural year round training ground for Chico area climbers.
Getting ThereHighway 162 east from Oroville, which may be your last stop for grub. Turn right at Bald Rock Road. Turn left on to a short dirt road at a Plumas National Forest sign for Big Bald Rock Trailhead. Park in the dirt lot with an outhouse and follow the signed trail for half a mile to the rolling slabs of Bald Rock.
