Description

The Taco is getting to be a bit more popular. Easily identified from the parking area 100 yrds up from the Ranch House if you look northwest. Many fun moderate routes exist on the west and east side. The west side is more slabby than the east. 15-20 min walk from parking area.
BLM Managed Lands at Castle Rocks PERMANENTLY CLOSED TO CLIMBING!! Castle Rocks State Park lands are OPEN TO CLIMBING Details

Getting There

Park by the green gate up the road from the Ranch House, go through the gate (lock it back up) and walk north on the old Ranch Road for 15-20 min until you see a sign for the crag.
