BLM Managed Lands at Castle Rocks CLOSED TO CLIMBING!! Castle Rocks State Park lands are OPEN TO CLIMBING MORE INFO >>>


A nice, straight up line to a very thin, pointy summit spire.

Friction with some thin seams, a short, shallow roofy section, and a nice finish.

Take care tagging the spikey summit as the fixed anchor is below the very top, where the rock is more robust.


Route is located directly up the middle of the south face of the North Tower formation with the very spikey summit.

Start on face to the right of a fourth class gully.

Rappel route from fixed anchor below the pointy summit spike.


Four lead bolts to be supplemented with small cams. Suggest a selection of cams ranging from 00 to 2 TCU or equivalent. A couple of small cams in the range of 00 and 0 might prove useful in between the first two bolts at a thin seam.
