Description

Chockstone Tower is an ultra classic tower in Palisades State Park. Many fun routes up it. Routes vary from the "West Slab Route"5.3 to "Aloha" 5.12. Great Dihedral is " The Bitch " 5.8-5.9? This tower also has some fun face climbs. Split Rock Creek roars less than 20 feet away so as you climb all you can really hear is the river a fun intense climb.

Getting There

When Entering into Palisades State Park hang a left and drive up the road a ways till you can pull off and park. Walk down the stairs and when you come to the bottom continue going straight following the path Chockstone Tower is at the far end where the trail looks like it dead ends but really keeps going up and around the corner.

I would highly recommend your anchor building skills, not mention your free soloing ability, be at a high level before attempting to set up this tower. It requires a long piece of static cord or webbing to build a master point at the top. Some Red or Yellow BD cams are useful with your anchor if you want to back up the lone little tree (which I would recommend doing). The pay off is some pretty fun climbs. Oct 19, 2017
