Park near the intersection of US Highway 34 Bypass and the US Highway 34 Business routes. The Estes street names are Wonderview and Elkhorn. Hike north across the road to the prominent spine of rock just east of the dome shaped Castle Rock. Depending on your approach, it is possible to cross private property. You will notice that you cross the NPS boundary about halfway up.

Okay, it may be a bit controversial to enter these routes, but the rock is on NP land, and they've been described in various guidebooks.This is a nice, face climb that challenges the average climber. You'll get a decent workout for a short climb.Find a set of 4 bolts on the left side of the west face. You should probably bring wires or possibly small cams to protect the stretch to the first bolt. The crux seemed to be between the 1st & 2nd bolts....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
