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 .

Getting There 

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 .

Fun, short route.Clip the first bolt before really doing any climbing, and ooze your way up to the obvious round cobble below the second bolt (this is noticeably easier if you are taller). Make a balancy clip and crank through the powerful, core-intensive crux. A good shake-out at the final bolt allows you to recuperate before committing to the tricky slab moves that guard the anchor. ...[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.
