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

Anyone know that name for this boulder? It's directly uphill from the Nature Nazi Boulders. I had to clean off a lot of dirt, pine needles, and moss, but this has definitely been climbed. Two obvious lines, one up the middle to a large shelf and one on the arête. I added the problems under the Nature Nazi boulders, and referred to it as the Uphill Nature Boulder. Please let me know if you have a name for the boulder or either of the problems, and I'll get it changed. Thanks! Sep 19, 2016
