Description 

This 12' - 18' boulder sits just south of Castle Rock proper, and holds bouldering problems suitable for warmups, and also for quite a challenge. Routes range from V0- to V6, on slabby to vertical faces.

Many people sightseer types will probably be in this area, which makes this rock not nearly as popular as the nearby Magoos, which sit about 100' south of The Beak.

Getting There 

Estimated approach: 5 - 15 minutes.

From the parking lot, follow the signs out of the left side of the parking lot to Castle Rock proper. As you wind uphill, you will come to a maintence road, where you should head right. You will come up to the large clearing just before Castle Rock Proper, and The Beak will be on your left, on the south end of the smooth rock clearing.
