The striking arete on Lyme Diseas Rock.
Lyme disease rock is a pleasant little crag worth checking out . There are moderate bolted lead routes as well as fun top ropes . There are also stiffer 5.11 and 5.12 leads . When Indian Rock or Castle Rock is jammed with people , Lyme disease rock will often be empty .
Proceed to the Indian Rock parking area . Make a quick right on the skyline trail and follow it for approx. 10 minutes . You will see the top of Lyme disease rock on the left hand side . Skirt to the right and down to get to the base of the crag . There is easy TR access .

Start climbing up a very short , yet awkward , dihedral to a big ledge . Move up staying left of the arete . The crux comes near the top where you pull through some sloping dirty holds to bigger jugs above . Bolted anchor for top roping . Given two stars in the Morris guidebook . A little generous IMO , not nearly as good as 'Ticks ripped my flesh' . Still worth doing for sure . ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

This spot rocks if you are a 10ish or 11ish climber. protection is good, and almost all climbs have a great TR. you will likely be away from the crowds, and you can even teach some trad on the left 5.7,5.8 cracks. Great moderate spot, without all the mess of goat rock or waterfall wall. This place is awesome, please don't go. srsly though, if you are the loud mouth annoying type stick to goat rock or waterfall wall, don't ruin it.
