Let's reclaim Skyline Slabs! Please read the link above before responding.
"This black sheep cousin of Castle Rock proper, Skyline Slabs is one of the better kept secrets in the Bay Area for good reason. The approach is long by Castle Rock standards, it's off the beaten path, and the sordid map in the otherwise good Bruce Morris read “Rock Climbers Guide To Skyline Boulevard” is challenging. Nevertheless, Skyline slabs and Eagle Peak to the south, plus all the smaller slabs in between and below in the Aquarian Valley and Devil’s Canyon, offer some really fine climbing."
"The climbing is diverse: Everything from low angle, fourth class face climbs to moderate cracks and bolted routes to overhanging 5.13 pumpouts is here. Some are long with possibilities for multi-pitch climbing, a rare pleasure in the Santa Cruz Mountains."
I live near these awesome crags. I'm a newish climber currently limited to TR and some sport (10's-low 11's). I don't have trad gear but would love to try. I have a rope, anchor, long slings and 6 draws.
