Area Description

A tribute crag to one of the greatest, most influential, singer-song writers of our time, Johnny Cash. Unlike Johnny Cash this crag is small, however what it lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. Chock full of stars, this blob of rock is an intermediate crag-seekers dream. Mixed routes and climbing, bring a light rack and draws. Look for the dome of rock in an open field northwest of Castle Rock.

Routes include:

1) Man in Black 5.9
2) Walk the Line 5.8
3) Ring of Fire 5.11c
4) Cash Crack 5.8
5) Country Trash 5.8
6) Five Feet High and Rising 5.9
7) Pepper Sprout 5.6

Approach

Walk north/west of Castle Rock using the main trail that skirts Castle Rock. Look for the small, random outcroppings.
