DescriptionThis 10' tall boulder holds a deceptively large variety of problems with a diverse range of options, from V0 to Chris Sharma's V8 traverse of the rock.
Sandstone, in the shade of the trees and Castle Rock Proper.
Jump off the top on the short side of the boulder, and a pad will help with the landing.
Trails are closed from sunset to 6:00 am. Details
Getting ThereApproach time:From the Parking lot: 5 - 15 minutes, depending on your pace.From Castle Rock proper: 10 seconds.
From the Castle Rock parking lot, head uphill on the leftmost walking path .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, and the 360 Degree boulder is just downhill from the other rocks of this area (spoon, bates arete and others.)
