The eastern sector of Castle Rocks
is a scattered, spread of monoliths, domes and faces. More of an adventure lies to those who travel here, but great climbing awaits. The closest and more recognized crag here includes the famous Comp Wall
. These are some of the more stunning crags and most concentrated. The majority of this sector is comprised of smaller, less obvious, and sometimes hard to locate crags.
Approach time will vary, but most crags will be found by breaking off the main double-track road/trail that leads to the very end of the sector.
The best approach is from the Ranch House parking area. Walk along the double-track road that skirts the cattle fence. Look for signs to designated crags. Expect about a half-mile walk and don't bushwack, theres a trail for every crag.

Start at flake and climb up the flake/shallow right facing corner until you can move left under a small overlap. Continue through the overlap on the left side and crimp up small edges to gain a blunt arete. Eventually the angle eases and bigger holds appear. The climbing continues up a pleasant slab to the anchors. Thanks goes to Brad Shilling for gifting this FA to Chris and I and for his initial cleaning of moss and lichen on this line....[more] Browse More Classics in ID
