About Lassen National Park:

This area has crags, volcanic hot springs, and a volcanic plug dome that rises to 10,457 feet. Eagle Peak is great in cold weather as it gets a lot of sun. Bellybutton is the largest crag in the Park. It has lots of cracks up to 165'. Most of the climbs are in the 5.9- 5.11 range. First started to be developed in the early 70's. Power drills are prohibited. There is free camping available in Lassen national Forest adjacent to the park. It is close to historic Chester and beautiful Lake Almanor.
Nearest town or city: Redding
Directions: From Redding head east for 47 miles on Hwy. 44. From Susanville head west on Hwy. 44 for about 70 miles. Three different climbing areas can be reached from the summit parking lot. 1)Eagle Peak-hike west from the lot.
