Castle Rock State Park (outdoor day trip)

**If you have gear and know how to set anchors please say so. The more leaders the better**

I’m heading over to Castle Rock State park for whoever’s looking to get some good climbing in. Not sure what area of the park yet (castle rock main, goat rock, Indian rock, etc.). Some climbing experience required. If you have anchoring gear please bring what you have. Route difficulty varies largely, if you are solid on 5.10’s you should be fine. Hikes in vary from .5 miles to 2 miles round trip depending on what the group wants to do. And usual climb times range from 4-6 hours again depending on the group.

    Things you’ll need to bring:
  • climbing harness
  • climbing shoes
  • chalk bag
  • belay devise
  • water & grub
  • anchoring gear if you have it
  • knowledge & experience on gear use
  • knowledge & experience on safe climbing practices

Let’s meet up at the following at 8:30 am (to beat the crowd)…
Downtown Saratoga Starbucks
14410 Big Basin Way #D, Saratoga, CA Carpool from there to…
Castle Rock State Park
15300 Skyline Blvd Los Gatos, CA[masked]

NOTE: Climbing is dangerous!!! Injury and death are possible without proper use of gear and safety practices. If you in anyway feel unsafe, have doubt in your own climbing knowledge/ability, have doubt in your climbing partners knowledge/ability, or don’t trust the gear/anchors set then don’t climb! It’s up to each individual to make their own judgment calls on the saftey of the climbing scenarios.

    In case someone shows up late, we're shooting for Indian Rock...

    LOCKHEED FOREST FIRE: It's kinda close to Castle Rock but there are no road closures in that area and I'm pretty sure I saw a new report saying the winds are pushing toward Bonnie Doon. Keep an eye on the link below.

    Just as an FYI, most of the stuff in Castle Rock is top rope accessible. Although, being able to Trad and Sport always opens up more stuff.
