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


Start like the name implies in a fun hand craft in a dihedral at the base of the South ridge. Jam up the corner until you can reach the large horn and pull onto the slab of the ridge line. A bit run out on the ridge but a bolt can be clipped about mid-way. Cruise up the ridge line to the top and use anchors for "Mole' Plablano" on the West Side.


South Ridge, Rap from anchors on the west side.


Selection of cams from .5 to 3in. 1 draw for the bolt.

Don't let the rating scare you away. The runout sections are 5.6 moves or easier. Bring a orange metolius and a yellow metolius for horizontals on the upper ridge. Bottom crack protects with standard hand size pieces. Slightly strenuous for 5.8 but fantastic climbing and position. Hit Mole Poblano on your way down. Jan 3, 2014
Double #2 and #1 were very nice for lower section. Agreed the upper portion is super easy, dont sweat the fact its runout. The lower section is very strenuous if you're lacking crack technique, though a great way to learn on the go. May 20, 2014
