Description

A beautiful gem of a National Park where the Sierra's and Cascades meet. Volcanic rock with many choices of style grade and approach.
For those interested in spending anything more than a day, and there is a lot in the park, Paul Bernard's excellent book "Rock Climbs of Northeast California" is well worth having.

Getting There

Several areas, but mainly Eagle Peak, Bellybutton & Raker Peak. 30+ minute approaches for most crags.
