Description

Concentrated area of good bouldering. Classics include Sharma Arete, Static Reach, Nature Nazi Boulder, Lost Keys Traverse, thee Classic, Asian Invasion, Right Hand Indian Man (not to be confused by "Right Hand Man"), and many others.

Getting There

Park in main area of Castle Rock. Follow obvious signage towards the north side of the road.

"Approach time: 3 - 5 minutes.

From the main Castle Rock parking lot, walk or drive east 150 yards to an opening on the opposite side of the street, which is the entrance to Sanborn-Skyline County Park.

There will be a sign a short ways (like 50 feet) in stating (among other things) "Indian Rock .1M", Go past this sign on the trail which will head up the hill and gradually left. You will find Indian Rock on the right side of this trail jutting 30 feet out of the ground, and surrounded by small boulders." - Aron Quiter
