Realm of the Venusian Love Goddess Rock Climbing
The Realm of the Venusian Love Goddess is another overlooked South Rim Area at Castlewood Canyon. Its East-facing direction makes it cool in the summer but is also not a good choice for winter climbing. The area features a pleasant mixture of routes: from trad, sport, toprope, and different disciplines of climbing. You can find the area by recognizing a large detached block with a bolted line on the opposite main wall.
From the main Parking Lot at the Southern entrance, follow the lake gulch trail for several hundred yards. When the trail takes its first left turn an descends head right into the open grass field. There is a faint trail at this juncture. Continue on the open field past the powerline and cut right (NE) to the cliffs. Follow the clifftop until you recognize the signiture detached block of the area. A simple downclimb can be found just SE of the block, ending at the block. Try to minimize impact to these areas when you are doing a bushwhack approach.

The next chimney/ crack to the right of the bolted roof and bolted face offers an interesting lead. Start off with a tricky move to get onto the route, climb past some wide spots, and make a committing layback off the flake. Topping out is also interesting. Caution! There is a loose block or two hiding in the recesses of the chimney. Also be a little wary of the flake which didn't inspire great amounts of confidence in me....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
