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


Not really a crux to this route unless you climb in the middle of an afternoon in summer. First pitch is WAY mellow but the second pitch while mellow is still a lot of fun. I recommend only doing these two pitches and save the top out for "Big Time" route but they easily can link up!


About 100 yards to the left of Big Time and just right of the obvious Red Rib feature. Follow the line of bolts up low angle climbing!


Bolts and lots of them with fixed anchors in uncomfortable spots! One double rope rappel will barely make it to the ground.

This is a really fun beginner lead climb, lots of hand holds and good foot holds. The first pitch would also be a great first pitch to introduce someone to climbing. It's about 90 feet, but it's easy and you climb about 20 feet and then there's a nice ledge to rest on before continuing the next 20 feet or so where there's another ledge. Jul 21, 2008

Many bolts...so good for a beginning leader. I think there are over 20 in the first 60m.

I've seen a hawk a couple of times in the chimney left of the second pitch, so be careful not to disturb it.

Lots of patina chickenheads to get your rappel rope stuck on at the top. Can rappel with a single 60m, since there are rap stations 30m apart. The last rappel station at the bottom is in a dish with no real place to stand...a test of how comfortable your harness is to hang in. Apr 9, 2010

Fun climb. Be prepared to hang at the first belay station. Was a great climb to get warmed up after a hiatus. Aug 20, 2011
Rappel possible (just) to top of left side gulley w/70m rope. Sep 13, 2011

Good slab climb with lots of features to grab and stand on. I wanted to clim this to get the points for the "City Slicker" award at the first "Idaho Mountain Fest". I ended up free soloing the route then rapping from the second pitch. Oct 14, 2012

This is a perfect route for teaching basic multi-pitch techniques. You can lead the 1st pitch and deal with the uncomfortable hanging belay, then your second can have the more fun 2nd pitch and a comfortable 2nd belay ledge. It was certainly nice to have the option to link up to the upper pitches of Big Time (which we did) - that final pitch is stellar for the grade (5.7). Apr 13, 2013
Maybe it's because I'm not really a slab climber, but I found Little Time more challenging and more interesting than the first 3 pitches of Big Time. Good route and fun. Jun 17, 2014

There is a bolted line between Little Time and Big Time. It is currently listed as High Times on here. High Times is not in the book, so make sure you go far enough climber's left if you're looking for Little Time. The second pitch of Little Time is incredible fun. Sep 13, 2014
