Bouldering Guide to the Castle Rock Area



Bruce Morris, 2002. MorComm Press
An update to Bruce's A climber's guide to Skyline Boulevard. This book contains a ton of updated information mostly consisting of bouldering in and around the Castle Rock State Park area, but also some updates to climbing rocks and routes from his book. This is a shorter guide, so if there is a debate between his two books, get the climbing guide unless you're a boulderer. The book is still recommended though!

Areas Covered..
Castle Rock & Sanborn-Skyline Parks

Rock Climbing and Bouldering in Northern California
This smaller book is written by Santa Rosa local Chris Summit specializing in the climbing of Sonoma County.

Chris's book also offers a better variety of bouldering problems than all the other bay area books combined.

Areas Covered..
Salt Point State Park
Fort Ross
Goat Rock Beach
Mount St. Helena
Squaw Cliff Area
Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Twin Coves
Dry Creek Sea Crag

The Wine Country Rocks - 2004. Rock Climbing and Bouldering



Chris Summit (2004). The Wine Country Rocks.
Chris's new version is quite similar to the previous version, though he has fixed up many of the unclear or erraneous sections of the book. If you own his 2001 book or don't own one of his books, this is definately worth checking out. If you own the 2003 version, you might want to wait until the next version comes out.

Areas Covered..
Salt Point State Park
Fort Ross
Goat Rock Beach
Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Squaw Cliff Area
Twin Coves
Mount St. Helena
