Ground Finale

5.10a R, Trad, 50 ft,  Avg: 1.6 from 8 votes

California > Joshua Tree Nat… > Belle Campgroun… > Belle Campground > Castle Rock > Castle Rock - North Side
Access Issue: Occupied Campsite Rule In Effect! Details


A few hard face moves at the start lead to easy 5th class climbing above. There is no protection, but you have a good landing if you come off on the hard part.


Junction Chimney on the left and Chimney Sweep on the right form a huge flake. This route goes up near the right edge of the flake.
