Boulder at Castle Rock

Castle Rock has some pretty good bouldering (world class according to Will) so let's tackle some of those problems! I'm throwing the idea in the air and hopefully people would be interested to join. I will buy a crash pad this week so we will have at least one. We should have some sport route equipement in case we want to do some of it too.

Please let us know if you have crash pad or other equipement in advance so that we can organize everything!

We will meet in parking lot at 9:00am. If you get there late find us at the Castle Rock Area. For a map see, http://www.virtualparks.org/maps/files/crcm-brochure-side2-v31.pdf

    Hi! I lived in Mammoth and got to play outdoors there and in Bishop. Been to PG years back. I'm looking to start climbing again-in the bay area. Can I join you tomorrow? Thanks!

    OMG, please discard my last message (due to insurance craziness I can't use the car at my disposal)

    April 29, 2011

  • Simon Le P.

    yeah will send you a text message so that you get it eventually

    April 29, 2011

  • Simon Le P.

    Will, Emily got back to me, I can use her car.
    I live in MV too, can give a ride to peeps or go with somebody.

    I don't have a pad, but I'll bring a rope and some gear in case we do some top-roping later on

    April 29, 2011

  • Simon Le P.

    Just one so far + ropes, do you have a pad Mark?

    April 29, 2011

  • Simon Le P.

    John, I don't know yet but give me your phone number and I will let you know then. Thanks!

    April 29, 2011

  • Simon Le P.

    John, yes we mentioned we would do some TR too during the day. Timing sounds good. Thanks

    Hi Anna, you are very welcome to join us! Do you have climbing shoes? This would pretty much be the only requirement to climb with us on sunday. There should be easy enough boulders to try and since we are bouldering you don't even need a harness. We will still bring some ropes in case people want to climb the few routes that are there, so if you have a harness, do bring it along, I'm sure you would like to try top roping some routes! Castle Rock is a pretty optimal place for beginners.

  • William T.

    I should be able to give you a lift Simon.

    April 29, 2011

  • Simon Le P.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJUNmolhCP0&feature=related, that should be fun! I will probably need a ride since I've been told I can't drive Emily's car ;)

    April 28, 2011

  • Tico

    to climb w/o ropes?

    April 28, 2011

  • Tyler

    what is "boulder"?

    April 28, 2011

  • Tico

    I have a "Bay Area Bouldering" guide and some pages from "Bay Area Top Ropes" guide that cover bouldering and roped climbing at castle rock if you guys want to borrow it. I'm headed to Bishop tomorrow night, but could drop by PG around 5.

    April 28, 2011

  • William T.

    The book I have has 1 page on Castle Rock bouldering. Wouldn't hurt to have another.

    April 28, 2011

  • Simon Le P.

    got one (since tonight)

    April 28, 2011

  • Tyler

    Who in the world has a crash pad?

    April 28, 2011

  • Simon Le P.

    Hey Will, Bruce, do you have a guide of the bay area that would cover Castle Rock?
