Description

Various climbs from 5.7 to 5.12+, sport trad and mixed. The approach can be an enduro in itself.
You are at 9,500'. Anything can happen, and usually does up here. Bring sunscreen, wind/rain protection, headlamp and common sense. It takes just as long to descend as it does ascend, leave adequate time.
Many of the climbs on the belly button 'top out'. The walk off is terrible, ugly, painful, unappealing and not fun. Avoid it if possible. Often the alternative is 2 rope rappel. Choices.

Getting There

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT CLIMBERS USE THE FOLLOWING APPROACH AS REQUIRED BY THE PARK SERVICE. From the Lassen Peak parking lot follow the peak trail approximately 1.1 miles to a right switchback where you will see a sign titled "Piercing the Rubble". From here leave the trail in a westerly (left) direction (towards the base of the crag). Stay low and in the boulder-field (or snow if there). It makes for some difficult walking at times, but is of much lower impact on the flora and fauna.
The approach can take anywhere from 60-90 minutes.. Trekking poles are awesome. The descent can take as long. Remember headlamps!
