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


Step up, clip, then make an awkward and kinda tricky traverse to the left. Fight the pump, find a clippin' jug, then head straight up. Gets easier higher (thankfully). Fun!


Left most route on the Tidal Wave wall. Rappel route.


Bolt protected sport climb. Fixed anchor (chain) at top.

There are four routes on Tidal Wave; Big Kahuna is the least attractive - it has a dicey start to a great face that is short in duration - perhaps one star out of three. The middle two routes are very good for their grade and are two star routes. The route furthest right is very high quality climbing from start to finish and is definetly a three star route. Tidal Wave wall is worth the hike!! Oct 13, 2008

I loved this wall, and this route was a really fun one. move right of the first bolt then move back to the left as you go for the second bolt. The moves around the second bolt are definitely 10a and feel a little scary, but the hands above the second bolt become amazing and the rest of the climb feels like a pumpy 5.9. Jul 9, 2009
