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


A fun overhung route on a highly featured face. The crux is at the end of the steep section just before the route slabs out at the finish.


Upper (right) end of the Crack House, west side of the north corner of Castle Rock.


Bolts with bolt rap anchors.

If you aren't grabbing a jug on this route, then you are not on it. Great little overhanging route, if only it was twice as long... Jun 23, 2013

And lastly, this route is correctly named "Honk On This Head" and was first done by Rick Thompson & Kevin Vowles, June 1999. We rated it 5.9 ***, but if the consensus grade has settled in at 5.10a so be it. Loved climbing at the Crack House (which is what we named the area, so at least some of the info I submitted to Brad Schilling got through)! Jun 1, 2014
