Description 

Shady for most of the day and both steeper and smoother in texture than the southern side, this side of Castle Rock has the bulk of the better routes in the area with rating ranging from 5.0 to 5.11+ although most are in the 5.10 and under range. A nice variety of both cracks and faces are available here with plenty to choose from in the moderate grades.

Getting There 

Approach through the campground to the obvious northern side of Castle Rock.
