The Pinnacles National Park is a protected mountainous area in Central California, offering spectacular views and quality climbs.

The national park is home to rocky spires and pristine pinnacles that were created by the chaos of earthquakes and activity of volcanoes.

There are two entrances, on the east side and the west side, that give access to a collection of climbs for all levels of abilities, whether you’re a beginners or advanced.

The east side holds harder, stronger and less crumbly rock which is great for top-rope climbing, with the west side home to weaker rock, known as volcanic breccia, which gives way a bit easier than granite.

It is actually quite a recently opened national park, redesigned as such in 2013, whereas before it was established as a national monument.

It also features caves that are home to 13 species of bats, with the land being home to falcons and condors.

The Pinnacles National Park is perfect for those who have started to cultivate their climbing skills in the gym or indoor wall and are looking to test out what you already know in a national playground.
