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.

A short jug haul to a dope crack. Really nice finger locks to a perfect hand jam rest, then prepare to do battle with the bouldery crux. The last fifteen feet are probably solid v3/4. A very rad climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
