Access Issue: No overnight camping on PG&E property Details
Noticed several tents while walking into the emeralds climbing area this last weekend ( 5/20/17 ). PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric) has posted several signs at the gate and other areas that state camping is NOT allowed. Please respect this so that access does not become an issue! Thanks in advance, Colby W.
Cast in Stone is a Two pitch climb (see Negativity Slabs Area for a description of first pitch) To get to the start of the second pitch of this climb, climb the first pitch of "Cast In Stone" (See Beta Photo #4) When you get to the top of the first pitch you will arrive at a bench area that is at the base of Negativity Cave. Move to the left side of Negativity cave. Move up to the first bolt and traverse left past the fixed draw. There is a bolt with a chain protecting the move over the lip. Climb to the next bolt then down climb to lip bolt and remove draw to reduce rope drag. Although only 5.8, climb has great exposure and a few tricky moves up top.
