BETA PHOTO: Lime Kiln Boulder Front and right side


This little roadside crag gets sun all day long and has a 30 second approach.
A series of small limestone bluffs with a few freshly bolted routes.
The rock is sharp on the fingers so might want to bring some tape.
Spend some time bouldering the many routes and variations on Lime Kiln Boulder located even closer to the road and easily top roped if you choose.

Getting There 

The crag is right off the side of HWY 299, between Junction City and the North Fork of the Trinity river. The approach is less than a minute.

Fetal Absorption 5.11- 6c 22 VIII+ 22 E3 5c PG13  California : Northeast California : Cortizone Corner
The easiest way up, following a weakness on the furthest left side of the prominent overhanging headwall. Start directly under the first bolt then trends left past 2 more bolts, then traverses right to the obvious overhang. The route is new, but most of the holds are cemented pretty well....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
