The rock climbing in the Mount Shasta area is very diverse. We have a wide variety of rock locally and in the vicinity. From the adventurous trad routes of Castle Crags, Castle Lake and the Trinity Alps to the radical overhanging limestone of Cecilville and Shredding and the many other crags scattered around the area will satisfy any climbers desire!Shasta Base Camp is the spot where you can get the beta on local climbing as well as the climbing equipment you’ll need for your ascents. We are passionate about climbing here and our team members are the leading developers in the area. We are out there doing it so we can give you the info your looking for on any level beginner to expert. We’ve been there, RECENTLY!, so we know what’s good and what should be avoided. We are also proactive in anchor and bolt replacement, we know that rapelling off of a route can be the most dangerous part of your adventure. If you’ve been climbing in the area and come across questionable fixed hardware, bolts, anchors, fixed pins / pitons, etc… let us know and we’ll give the information to one of our team members.
Local Rock Climbing In Full Swing
Route Developement at Castle Crags is underway, Team Shastafari has been hard at work and leaving a trail of Crag’s testpieces in their wake! From “Apnea” in the Grotto 5.12d unrepeated, “Castle Corner” 5.12c on Castle Dome, to Marbelous 5.13a(r) in the Marble Gully. Many other fine routes in the 5.9-5.11 have been established as well, all with the usual Crag’s Spice! Summer Crag’n at the Crag’s is awesome and if your down to climb hard these new school shady gully crag’s may be for you.
