Description [Suggest Change]

This large 10 - 20' high pile of boulders is the closet climbing to the Castle Rock official parking area, hence the name.

There are probably 20 established problems on the rock, ranging from V0 to really really hard V10, and more difficult projects to boot. Some are quite highball, others protect fairly well.

Most of the problems on this rock are pretty sustained by Castle Rock standards, with many problems staying hard from the ground up to the sketchy mantle.

All sandstone, and you can walk off the top with a little bit of exploring.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Approach time: From the Parking lot: 5 minutes, depending on your pace. From Castle Rock proper: 3 minutes.

From the Castle Rock parking lot, head uphill on the 2nd to leftmost walking path about 150 yards uphill on a small climber's path.

From Castle Rock proper, walk around the right side of the rock to the smaller boulders slightly downhill and left of the trail. Pickup the trail heading left just below the small boulders, and follow this trail downhill to the right for about 200 yards, where it will run directly into the Parking Lot Rock.
