Access Issue: Due to COVID 19, please be respectful of the residents of Almo. Wear a mask when indoors at places like Rock City or the Visit. (1) BLM Managed Lands at Castle Rocks PERMANENTLY CLOSED TO CLIMBING!! Castle Rocks State Park lands are OPEN TO CLIMBING (2) Highlining temporary ban in place at CIRO/CRSP Details


Climbing is on excellent patina granite, pulling on significant jugs/edges. Start with a difficult side pull/balance move off the deck and move up the patina face. 10 feet of easy 5.10 and then cruise the rest of the route at 5.7. There is a second set of anchors at approx 50 feet up so the route can be broken into two pitches if desired. (and also rappelled in two pitches). We used a 70 meter rope and did one pitch lead and rappel.


The route goes up the north face. Starting from the highest point on the north side, scramble around behind a large detached flake of rock moving west along the bottom of the north side of Bracksiecks Pillar until you come to a small tree growing out of the rock. This will be just west of the major weakness that ascends the north face.


Route consists of bolts but pro can be placed if desired (not necessary) to chain anchors on the face near the top of the pillar.
