(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…
Sit start with your right side-pulling on a decent knob and a left gaston on an okay scoop. Stand up to another crappy gaston. Get your right out to an opposing gaston and transition your left across to match the same lip as your right. Reach wide right for a good hold above the roof. Continue to traverse right till you can find a good hold to hook, roll, and mantle out the finish.
The crux is getting into the double gaston and then getting your feet up for the transition to the match.
