Description [Suggest Change]

A surprising little spot hard to see as you zoom by at 55. Great crag to get out of Redding heat, before the snow melts in Lassen. You will seldom see anyone here, other than a local group on a weekend. The woods around are scattered with boulders and mini-crags.
The roadside crag has been "discovered" by numerous parties, some before bolting, some after. But until Paul Bernard's great book "Rock climbs of Northeast California" few knew of names of routes or FA's in the area. Hence many names for the same route.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

From Redding head east on HWY 44. After passing through Viola (pop 25?) continue on for a couple of miles. When you come to a road cut through rock (the only one on 44 for miles) you are at the crag. Park on the right (south) side of the road. There is a trail on the west side (the side you just drove from) that leads 100' to the crag.
