Description 

An excellent limestone sport climbing crag, located 26 miles outside of Redding on the way to Burney via the 299. The rock is limestone of pretty good quality, a bit dirty from lack of use but solid.

Getting There 

From the I-5 take CA299 east toward Burney. Burney Limestone is 26 miles outside of Redding, look for a sign that says 24 miles to Redding which will let you know you're getting close. First you will pass a pretty large limestone outcropping, this is not it. After a large S turn, you will see a pullout on the right side of the road, and a small trail on the left side of the road heading up a steep hill into the forest, that is the trail to the Shredding. You'll know you passed it once you see a large limestone wall on the left, this is technically part of Burney Limestone but past the main area.

Progressively more difficult climbing up tufas and big pocke. Last third of route is significantly harder than the first bit. The crux can be pulled in a powerful direct fashion or a more technical rightward option. Amazing climbing on good stone....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
