Arguable the most popular area at Castle Rocks, the South Face is the place to land when visiting for the first time. Whether by choice or by accident, you will climb here. Popular due to access, the South Face is one of the first and most prominent crags at the Castle. Climbing here covers all bases. There are pure cracks, bolted routes, mixed routes and mult-pitch. Probably the largest feature at Castle Rocks, routes here reach 300 feet in length. Get here early, lines are not uncommon.
Follow the main road past the Ranger Station into Castle Rocks. Drive to the farthest parking lot and walk left/south towards to the base of this obvious dome.

Not really a crux to this route unless you climb in the middle of an afternoon in summer. First pitch is WAY mellow but the second pitch while mellow is still a lot of fun. I recommend only doing these two pitches and save the top out for "Big Time" route but they easily can link up!...[more] Browse More Classics in ID
