As Ambassadors to our sport, it is both important the share as well as preserve what we love. Sadly the situation in the City Of Rocks/ Castle is home to many problems existing on land with questionable access. With the park's lack of a management plan for bouldering, it is unclear on how they will address such an issue. However the benefit to having the park address these issues would mean trails, landings in popular areas, as well as a guide(currently in the works by myself.) On the contrary, those problems I have grown to love, would be exposed and most likely be closed to climbing. These are current issues that are cause for alarm, as I am the main cause. I would urge my fellow climbers to address your concerns to the management, our community is strong and can have an influence to benefit us boulderers.

Over 200 problems have been recorded, and it is information I would love to share, but none of this can happen until these issues are resolved. Oct 13, 2015

Jason, nice to have you contributing...dont take this too harsh, but the information and organization you have offered for this "area" is pretty lackluster (poor). There is bouldering all over the city of rocks! It would make more sense to describe each area individualy. For example under the newly formed City of Rocks bouldering "area"(why not just call it bouldering... we all know it is refering to the city of rocks), a sub area "campsites 5-20 boulders" could be formed. (later someone could also add elephant rock boulders, checkered demon boulders, etc etc.) Within this area you could then describe individual boulders/problems and their location relative to a numbered campsite. You could then describe the boulder problems you enjoyed climbing on your "circuit." I guess what im saying is we all benefit from quality information...please do your best to help keep information on mountain project organized, valuable, and...great! May 22, 2010
