Castle Crags represents a small but prominent feature of the Klamath Mountains in northwestern California. Although the Klamath Mountains largely consist of rocks of volcanic and sedimentary origin, granite bodies ( plutons) intruded many parts of the area during the Jurassic period. Heavy glaciation at this location during the Pleistocene eroded much of the softer surrounding rock leaving the towering crags and spires exposed, from which the Castle Crags pluton derives its name. Hanging glaciers also resulted in exfoliation of huge, convex slabs of granite yielding rounded forms such as Castle Dome. Elevations range from 2000 feet along the Sacramento River near the base of the crags to over 6500 feet at the summit of the tallest crag. ...more on Wikipedia about "Castle Crags"
