This is a chimney climb located on the right side of the south face of Castle Rock. It can be top-roped (or lead).

The crux may be near the start where you fight some awkward moves to get established in the chimney.

It may be tougher for small kids. It is also used for guiding.


On the right side of the south face.


Cams. A very long set of slings if you top rope off the top.

A fun , short , stout , 5.6 chimney. Near the top , if you chose to stay right of the 5.9 face , there are fun runout moves that will see you to the top. I'm not sure if it is considered part of the chimney route but it is harder than 5.6 . The last moves are an exciting mantle with the key holds on top being part of a hole that might or might not have water in it. Dec 4, 2008

The first and last moves are a bit tricky, but everything else is pretty straight forward, almost more of a scramble in places. Jun 16, 2010

Would be sweet if it was longer but still fun. Almost an off width. Easy finish to the right hard finish to the right. Jan 23, 2011
