This is the stand start to the line called "Free Range," V13.

On the left-center of the Citadel Boulder's south face is a good side-pull/underling. Start with both hands on the side-pull/underling and paste your feet on the wall and then pull hard reaching out left to a bad (L)hand side-pull. Adjust your footing and toss with furry to the lip of the boulder with your (R) hand. Mantle for the top-out and walk off.

Short but if your in market for flying this is a good place to earn your wings!!


Located on the Citadel Boulder up stream on the rivers edge a few hundred yards from the main parking lot of the Castle Rock climbing formation.

Park in the Castle Rock pull out and wall east along the road until you get to the other side of the Castle Rock formation. Hop the railing and head down to the river and the Citadel Boulder will soon come into view.


Pads and a spot.

This is a very cool line. I have not stuck the toss yet but man I just love this sort of all or nothing dynamic movement!!! It's a must try or DO!!!!
