Description

Poultry Pillar is a satellite formation just north of Castle Rock and directly across from the Crack House on Castle Rock. It has a few crack routes on it's west side: Chicken Slinger, Drumstick Direct and Historic Route. On it's featured south-east side, it has 3 bolted routes, Groom with a View, To Have and to Hold, and Opuntia, along with a toprope and one of the 2 "No Climbing" areas for Zone 1 of the park. These routes were first climbed during Brad Shilling's wedding in the aspen grove below (He's the climbing ranger for COR and Castle Rock State Park). On the east side, there is another route called Freedom Fries, 12b.

Take the north route west from the headquarters, heading towards Castle Rock. When you hit a T intersection, walk right for a few hundred yards . Just before some large boulders (Tiny Town), look for orange flagging and a trail to the west (on your left). Follow a trail up the slope to the draw between Poultry Pillar and The Crack House. The SE face with it's 3 bolted routes will be on your right.
