Description 

The western region of Castle Rocks is the furthest most area in the park as well as the most obscure. The Sanctuary is just that, a sacred, quiet, solemn climbing area with lots of rock to explore. If you're into a hike and open to adventure, The Sanctuary is your place. A newer, clear trail helps gain access to this remote area and leads into the heart of the climbing. This is a cool area with plenty of moderates, expect a lot of mixed routes and cracks. Explore The Sanctuary with an open sense of adventure and a good attitude. A 60 meter rope will suffice; bring slings, draws, and a rack. Plan to build some anchors and prepare to walk-off some routes.


Getting There 

From Castle Rocks folow the main trail north of the parking lot towards Comp Rock, Aim left looking for the Johnson Creek sign and trail. Continue along the trail for about 30 minutes or a half-mile until you reach aspen groves and a cluster of small crags. See individual crags for more directions.
