DescriptionThe routes here were set in the early 90's and are sportier than the moderate stuff at the base of Castle. Approaching from above you will soon find Upper Chambers on your Right. This wall has two 5.10's and an 11d between them, all sharing a pair of open cold shuts.
Hike further near the bottom of the gully and you will come upon The Holy Flail 11b/c on the Right side, starting high, followed by the Lower Chambers wall with a 10d and 11b (L to R) sharing open cold shuts.
Getting ThereFrom the Castle Gates boulders, continue straight ahead toward Castle Rock's peak which is visible between trees. The Central Gully can be found by heading downhill on the first apparent trail after the Castle Gates where you'll see a gray weathered stump.
Approaching from above, Upper Chambers is soon found to your Right and The Holy Flail 11b/c and Lower Chambers are found near the base on the Right side.
If you hike below this you will meet the main climbing area trail just West of The Prize Cliff and Playground Rock.
