Castle Rock at Big Bear Lake

I will be visiting Big Bear for the first time this week and the weather looks horrible for snow, but great for climbing. Are all climbs on Castle Rock accessible from any climb that goes to the top? I would like to top rope Knightline.

Any other suggestions for easier trad or sport or harder top ropes in the area?

I was just up there a couple of days ago (snowboarding a little lower down at Running Springs) and everything was pretty snow free except for north facing aspects.  It was not very warm though.  45 in the sun, with a strong breeze that made it quite a bit colder.

Yes you can scramble up to the top of castle rock and set up top ropes.   Make sure to use a 70m for knightline.
