Please be respectful of the land owner's wishes and do not climb or hike here until further notice. This includes White Lightning, Skinner Roof, Weather Wall, Yellow Wall, Larry's Annihilation, Needle Rock, Mississippi Fred's, and Secret Tom's.

(3) HIGHLINING IS PROHIBITED
By the authority of the park manager, Highlining at City of Rocks National Reserve and Castle Rocks State Park is temporarily prohibited as of August 28, 2019.
The park(s) is reviewing highlining activities. Here are Google Drive links to the closure and the updated Code of Regulations for CIRO. drive.google.com/open?id=1y… and drive.google.com/open?id=1Y…
Climbing here varies from face to crack to slab to everything in-between. A set of about 8-10 draws, a few long runners and a single set of gear should do the trick. Routes here aren't very tall and a 60 meter rope will just make it.
Lucky for most, there are more than two routes here, while waiting to be called, try your luck on Holding Out for a Hero or the highly aesthetic Smurf Smasher.
Descend: Reduce wear and tear by rappeling from anchors on top.
Morning shade / Afternoon sun.
