Description

This area of Castlewood has a few routes of good quality that see little traffic. Like Castlewood, in these few routes you'll find sport, trad, and TR climbing. The Rat Cracks are a series of cracks that can be useful in identifying the area as well as providing some trad leads.

Getting There

Approach the area by parking at the furthest N. lot on the S. entrance to the wood. Take the Lake Gulch Trail N from the lot and follow it to the creek and Creek Bottom Trail. The area is on the North Rim and can be difficult to find. It is the furthest N. area along this sector of the rim. Try to identify the area by the unusual Rat Cracks.
