Access Issue: BLM Managed Lands at Castle Rocks PERMANENTLY CLOSED TO CLIMBING!! Castle Rocks State Park lands are OPEN TO CLIMBING Details

Description

A nice wall for a casual outing with a relatively flat staging area. The routes face west and are located just a few feet off the trail circling the main Castle Rock formation. The climbs are generally slabby in nature, but then turn a bit steeper as you approach the anchors.

Getting There

The wall is located at the northwest corner of the main Castle Rock formation. Approach by following the main trail around the north side of the Castle Rock formation, passing between the Crack House and the Poultry Pillar. Follow the trail as it gradually descends and watch for the slabby wall on your left. 10-15 minute approach from the parking area.
