Description

This small face is the first one reached on the hike from Highway 18 and is identified by a distinct wide crack behind a large pine tree. There are but a handful of routes here with most having names that follow a theme of sorts - Easy As Your Sister's Best Friend (5.5), Black Tower Crack (5.7), Easy As Your Best Friends Sister (5.10b) and Hard As Your Husband (5.10c), which climbs the prominent off-width crack.

Getting There

Hiking the trail from Highway 18 takes you right past this wall; the rest of Castle Rock lies around to the left if facing the wall. Plan on a 20-30 minute approach from the car.
