Access Issue: Falcon Nesting Closure at Castle Rock Details


Broken holds at the bottom have upped the grade over the years. Climbing through the first three bolts involves desperate crimping and nothing for feet, and seems at least as hard as any of the sequences on Dinosaur.

Gaining the fourth bolt involves running it out on sandy rock. If the climber blows it at the end, the belayer will have to be attentive to prevent a ground fall.

After that, the rest of the climb is a delight, involving interesting movement on slopey dishes and surprisingly crisp crimps.


To the right of Bolt Route. Currently the rightmost line on this sector of the Lower Tier.


Eight glue-in bolts (6"; 2013). Stick clip highly recommended.

The anchors (in Oct. '21) are manky old chains that look like they belong in a BDSM fantasy. It's easy to traverse left to the anchors of Bolt Route, using a good rail for hands, for a more confidence-inspiring lower.
