Getting There

Park where the Castle Rock loop road joins the Boulder Canyon Highway at its east (downstream) end. The wall can be seen up the hillside to the northeast, partially obscured by some large trees. It is to the right of the obvious rock with a large dike and a crack. The best approach to the cliff is from the left.

I went today and couldn't find it. There's no obvious trail. I'm not much of a trailblazer, but it's definitely not an easy approach to find or complete. May 27, 2015

Now an interesting crag with the routes getting harder from left to right. Some are quite hard, but also quite short. Aug 16, 2010
