Description [Suggest Change]
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 Friend's Sister (5.10b) and Hard as Your Husband (5.10c), which climbs the prominent offwidth crack.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
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.
