Description Suggest change

The south face is the tallest, most striking portion of Castle Rock and home to some of the finest routes in the area with solid, well-featured stone that's enjoyable to climb. The area does get fairly hot in the summer sun - so be aware.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike the trail along the base to reach this portion of Castle Rock.
