Join MAA in Tahoe for local craggingCastle Rock offers several bolted routes in the 5.6 - 5.8 range, but if you select smaller holds you can easily be climbing 5.10 or harder; it's up to you! All of the routes have excellent anchors for top-roping, or lowering if you want to sport climb. Castle Rock gets lots of sunlight, so even if the weather is cool it should be a great day. Loaner gear may be available. Hope to have you out with us!
