Rock climbing on Grotto Rock wall
Rated by 1 user ... share an opinion on Grotto
Excuse me climber, would you like cracks or juggy sport climbing today? Take your pick at the Grotto, a great climbing destination at least three seasons of the year. Routes are almost all under a half pitch, so they can be toproped after a leader sets up an anchor off the chains. The rock here has been known to shift or fall, so please climb carefully and inspect bolts and anchors whenever you use them. Otherwise, enjoy the fantastic array of cracks, from thin fingers through to nasty offwidths. The sport climbing in the Ort wall opposite the cracks gives a completely different workout and features some quality routes that have inspired routesetters from climbing gyms.
Access crosses private property. Please be respectful of the landowners and close gates after you pass through them.
I'm at Grotto with Benny Kong and Mani with Meetup team. Everyone's cool and fun, made this overcast day super fun!

Cracks and sport, and both are quality and good to climb for most of the year round. Only thing missing is easier multipitch- you need to lead 5.12+ to hit the multipitch routes here. The first pitches range from 5.8 on up, so enjoy fantastic climbing!
