Patrick: There are lots of different areas to climb at Mount Saint Helena, and the rock varies. Many sport climbers head over to The Far Side or Bubble Rock which is right on the dirt private access road. The Quarry is down lower and much more solid rock with some actual cracks to lead on gear, so not as many bolts. Most people top rope at The Quarry though from what I've seen. Much of currently established part of The Quary is easier less-than-vertical stuff, but there are some other cool lines which might be cool to develop. My understanding is that Table Rock and the other stuff on that side of the road is much more choosy and harder to protect.

No beta, but having worked and lived in Napa Valley and my late brother Mac a winemaker extraordinaire there, I always wondered about Mt St Helena.

Is it choss or is there some sound rock?

And those rocks around Stags Leap (private property I think, I've been above them as a road runs around near the top of them). I always wondered if there could be some climbing there.

EDIT

Thanks for the info Ryan^^^

I bring beginner climber friends up here on a regular basis. I'm planning on replacing the old rusty main top-rope bolts on the weekend of April 12-13th and maybe setting some other bolts for climbing in the "cave" area. Anybody have a problem with this? Any specific requests for bolting additions/replacements in "The Quarry"?
