The impending closure of Castle Rock, one of the Bay Area's best climbing destinations, has prompted a rallying cry from climbers across the world. Chris Sharma, a native of nearby Santa Cruz and world renown rock climber, has pledged to show three multimedia presentations to support the park. All proceeds from the show will go to the Portola and Castle Rock Foundation--the non-profit responsible for the park's self sustaining budget.
Sharma began his climbing career in 1993 at Castle Rock, where he established many of the best problems including the Sharma Arete, Ecoterrorist, and the Sharma Traverse. The sandstone at the state park is some of the best on the west coast of the United States and the climbing attracts hundreds of boulderers and roped climbers every year.
