Announcing a new Meetup for Bay Area Rock Climbing!
What: Castle Rock State Park
When: August 16,[masked]:30 AM
14410 Big Basin Way
Saratoga, CA 95070
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. Things you?ll need to bring: climbing harness, climbing shoes, and a chalk bag. 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. Right now I only have the limit set to 5 people which I'll raise if others have gear and know how to set anchors.
Let?s meet up at the following at 8:30 am (to beat the crowd)?Down Town Saratoga Starbucks
14410 Big Basin Way # D, Saratoga, CA
Carpool from there to?Castle Rock State Park
15300 Skyline Blvd Los Gatos, CA[masked]

Also, climbing is dangerous! If you in anyway feel unsafe, have doubt in your ability to climb certain climbs, 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 climbing scenarios.
