(3) HIGHLINING IS PROHIBITED
By the authority of the park manager, Highlining at City of Rocks National Reserve and Castle Rocks State Park is temporarily prohibited as of August 28, 2019.
The park(s) is reviewing highlining activities. Here are Google Drive links to the closure and the updated Code of Regulations for CIRO. drive.google.com/open?id=1y… and drive.google.com/open?id=1Y…
Start up the ever-steeping base straddling the wide-but-narrowing seam and clip the first bolt from a fun position with a jug. Find a way to get up and into position for the second bolt, and then figure out the crux.
Still a bit of strenuous climbing to go: get above the crux section and then break right onto the beautiful, large reddish-brown plate. A bit of spider crawling up and then head a bit left and cruise to the chains.
