Description

Of the two prominent towers extending south from Castle Rock, this is the north one. It has a cubic shape and a flat top. The summit can be scrambled via the northeast and northwest gullies (3rd class).

Getting There

Just north of the Village of Oak Creek, park in the Bell Rock Trailhead parking lot (you'll need a Red Rocks pass), then, looking both ways, cross Hwy-179 and head west on the Templeton trail. See attached photos for orientation. The approach hike will take less than 30 minutes or less and follows a well established hiking trail the whole way up to the saddle, which separates the North and South Castle Towers. In general you will find good trails connecting the different ledge systems on each formation.
