Description

A bit lower angle than the rest of Castle Rock, this wall offers a good collection of sport and trad routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.11d. Hence this area is a good warm up area and can get a little crowded at the beginning of the day. Like most routes at Castle Rock, the routes involve blocky features, edges, and technical movement.

Getting There

From the parking lot, follow the trail up and right. You can either wait until you see the Predator Wall and cut left up a trail or do so earlier if you know your way around the area.

This wall is just left of the Predator Wall.
