Description

This cliff offers a variety of sport climbs and some old Dan Hare gear route. Morning/early afternoon shade gives good sending temps to these 5.13- and up sport routes. It is probably too cold in winter, so the best time to climb here is spring, summer, or fall.

L->R these may be:

A1. Double Impact, 13, alternate start, 1p, 60', bolts.
A2. Van Damage, 13-, 1p, 45', bolts.
B. The Orb, 13-, 1p, 40', bolts.
CB. The McDavid Bro Sesh (aka Bro Sesh), 13, 1p, 45', bolts.
D. Con Gaz, 13, 1p, 60', bolts.
E1. Sinopia, 13-, 1p, 60', bolts.
E2. Sin Gaz, 12, 1p, 60', bolts.
F? Last Tango, 10, 1p, gear.
G? Frisky, 10-, 1p, gear.
H? Code Red, 12-, 1p, 60', bolts.
I. The Borg, 13, 1p, 70', bolts.
J. Rumors of Glory, 13, 1p, bolts.
K. Pesky, 7, 1p, 100', bolts.
L1. Lola’s Route, 10, 1p, 100', gear.
L2. Brodey’s Route, 11-, 1p, 60', gear.

Getting There

I always park at "Castle Rock" (10-11 miles up the canyon). An alternative is to park at the chipped park,...er excuse me the Sport Park. Either way it's probably best to warm up at either crag. To approach the crag from the Castle, cross the little bridge just downriver from Country Club Crack. Once across follow a faint trail up past the cliff on your left (the Broken Cliff, I believe) to a flat aqueduct trail. Head west around the corner for about .5 miles. A pleasent hike with great views of the Castle. You will also pass the "Mountain Rose" cliff once on the aqueduct trail. Don't confuse these slabs with the Frisky Cliff routes. Steep bolted routes on your left is the big indication that you have reached your destination.
