DescriptionAlthough not technically not part of Grizzly Dome, Plumas Slab is so close that it logically falls into a sub-area of Grizzly.
Although the rating might seem easy on the slabs remember who put these up and when. Be prepared for heady leads, thoughtful moves, and sandbagged ratings. Best to be well schooled in runout slab climbing.
The granite appears to go up for many pitches, but sadly, the angle eases, the wandering increases, and the quality of the rock decreases. Remember that there is a highway below.
Cal Trans passed a law some years ago which prohibits any climbing within 15' of the roadway. You might see bolts or routes which are within this 15'. These are no longer legal routes, and out of respect for the vehicles and drivers, and to keep climbing open in the canyon, please follow these rules.
There are other climbs on the slab than those listed, which are either no longer accessible due to legality or of dubious safety or attraction. If interested, they and their history are well covered in Paul Bernard's book "Rock Climbs of Northeastern California", a book well worth owning if one climbs in the area.
