Where you'll be

Castle Rock is THE outdoor climbing spot for the Bay Area. Other than driving several hours up to the Sierras or down to the Pinnacles, there is no other good climbing area in the Bay Area or Santa Cruz region. We have been state park licensed guides here for over 15 years. The climbing is fun and the views are amazing - all the way to the Pacific Ocean on a clear day! You'll be climbing and ancient sandstone cliffs amongst redwoods trees!
