Description

I will guide you on this truly special, epic and amazing rock climbing trip at Castle Crags in Northern California, near Mt. Shasta, a peaceful and remote area full of some of the best traditional and alpine style rock climbing in California, and also a wide array of climbing routes and superb views out over the beautiful and idyllic Californian countryside.

Castle Crags is a famous rock formation located in the North of California, with its tallest crag measuring at an elevation of over 2,000m high. It has become one of the most popular rock climbing destinations in the country for serious climbers.

After meeting in the morning in Mt. Shasta, we then head out to the crags, whose relatively isolated location means that crowds are never much of an issue.

After running through all appropriate safety gear and information, we then hit the crags in earnest, with some of the more famous climbs to undertake including Plumbline, Six Toe Crack and the mighty Cosmic Wall, which has become a true rock climbing bucket-list item since its establishment in 1979.

The views we will be exposed to are absolutely sublime, with vast tracts of forest, mesmerizing waterways and the towering and majestic Mt. Shasta all visible from the crags.

Hopefully this trip will encourage you to come back and rock climb more areas of this peaceful slice of Californian beauty.

This rock climbing adventure will truly take your breath away – book now to experience the thrill!
