Description

The 1,000 foot tall west face of this blade of rock contains some of the best face climbing in the Sierra. The routes were mostly pioneered during the 80's and each require commitment and a cool head. To date only seven routes have been climbed:

North Buttress, 5.10
Nervana, 5.10d
Silver Lining, 5.10a
Aspire, 5.9
Unknown route by Kris Solem?
Charley Knapp Route, 5.9
Unknown Route up the corners on the far right?

None of the routes have seen very many ascents, and some have never had a second. That may be because of the approach, the runnout nature of the climbs, or the fact that it's a super awesome rock and it's waiting for more super awesome people to climb it!
Always check road conditions and peregrine closures Details

Getting There

See the main Castle Rocks page and approach from Atwell Mill or Buckeye Flat.
