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


Start up a shallow, left-facing corner through steep, less-than-quality rock using the featured rock on the right and the gritty, non-featured rock on the left for feet. A nice, heavily-chalked block in the corner offers a nice clip hold but doesn't look like it'll be there for long. (I broke two holds in the first 15' of the route in Sept. 2008.)

Pull the crux around the 4th bolt into less steep and easier but run-out climbing past a few more bolts to the bolted anchor.


This climbs up near the center of the west side of Sweet 17. A shallow left-facing corner to a left-angling crack is easy to spot. This is the route.


7 bolts plus a two bolt anchor.
