Castle Crags is an amazing area near Mount Shasta, one which should have great appeal to rock climbers. Why it isn’t more well known, I have no idea. Gorgeous stuff. The photos didn’t come out well due to the low light and lens damage due to a drop by a certain klutzy hiker.
We wandered for a while between 5:30 and 6 a.m. as I blasted from Portland down to the bay area to meet my wife. I had driven most of the night, and I needed to stretch my legs. Good choice. If you are interested in the area, take the exit for Castle Crags State Park a few miles south of Dunsmuir.
Stay tuned for more!
