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

This is a pleasant, unprotected steep face on solid, knobby holds. It's really more of a boulder problem than a roped climb. The hard moves are in the first 15' - 20', with a good landing below....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
