Climbing here is not technically legal, however , it is tolerated. Please keep a low profile.
This area contains three walls. Left to right, the first is Rite of Spring Wall with 90 foot climbs in the 5.9-5.11 range. Opposite is a low-angle, south-facing wall with easier routes (5.3-5.7). Around the arête of this wall is another more vertical wall with Modern Eyes (5.9).
The first area you reach on the blue-blazed trail from the Castle parking lot. The trail plunges down a steep gully and up the other side. Walk another 40(?) yds. Look for a faint, steep climbers trail on your right. Scramble down the gully until you can traverse skiers left along the bottom of the cliffs. The Rite of Spring Wall is the first tall wall you encounter with a thin vertical crack in the middle.
