Just north of the Castle Rocks sector are the South Hills. The South Hills are just that, sage brush and juniper tree laden hills with interspersed towers, slabs, cracks and faces. Outlined by two drainages, this area's confines are diverse and spread out. Desolated crags and plenty of privacy can be found here as well as plenty of hidden gems.
From the upper Castle Rocks proper parking area walk north/west following well-traveled trails for about 20 minutes. Aim for the token feature/pinnacle, The Sorcerer's Stone.
