This small bouldering rock sits just downhill behind Castle Rock Proper. The top of the rock is shaped like an upside down spoon, and the rock itself looking at it across the gradient looks like a spoon. Hmmm... Hence the name?
Approach time: Parking lot: 5 - 15 minutes, depending on your pace.Castle Rock proper: 10 seconds. From the Castle Rock parking lot, head uphill on the leftmost walking path 0.3 miles to Castle Rock proper. The walk wanders a bit, but the path is signed the whole way, so it's hard to miss. Once at Castle Rock proper (the big one, you can't miss it), walk around the right side of the rock to the smaller boulders slightly downhill ad left of the trail. This is the first boulder the trail will take you to if you walk downhill to the lower side of the rocks. The front face of The Spoon is just left of the trail about 5 feet.

Unknown contrived dyno V3 6A CA : San Francisco Bay : ... : The Spoon
This is a contrived problem, but it's really fun so I decided to add it. Basically, you start on two head high crimps on the left side of the spoon problem proper. Get your feet up and dyno up and right to the lip. Careful not to hit the tree!...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
