Access Notes Details
CRAGS, the local Access Fund org, continues to work with the City of Rocklin, and its Parks and Recreation Department, to improve the conditions of this bouldering site. Because of the setting, litter is a problem in this area. Please do your part. With a number of clean-ups and a recent face lift to the park, it is one of the easiest bouldering locations to get to in the Sacramento valley. With a longer term goal of (literally!) draining the swamp, and holding many future local events, Rocklin Bouldering is one of first and longest ongoing projects. Note that the former quarries east of Pacific Street, and opposite Deer Creek Park, are closed to climbing. You can communicate access issues directly at CRAGS’ Deer Creek Park page norcalcrags.org/crags/rockl….
DescriptionAIRY HIGHBALL!!! I have determined this a V4 - but the book says V3 climb the large dihedral to incuts , then traverse left under the roof to a large pinch. Reach back and right to the horn/jug. Straight-arm and palm the horn to reach a SMALL! incut crimp in the small dihedral left of the hanging arete. Putting your feet up to the horn and stemming onto the slab, make a DELICATE move out to the hanging arete with plenty of air beneath you. Reach to positive lip.
ProtectionI would advise a rope, this is extremely airy and after the first couple of moves there is nothing that a pad would protect.
I used a BD #4-5 to protect at the top. There is also this cool anchor at the top that I have used but bring a few runners to avoid rope drag, because the edge is SHARP!
