Kim Miller on Bellissimo

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


We traversed right 20 feet from the base of High Road on the low angle slab then pulled up onto the steep patina face to clip the first bolt. Follow 6 more bolts angling slightly left to the chains.


Between High Road and Wedding Gift. This climb is 20 feet to the right of High Road and you can see the bolts and chains from the base.


7 bolts to 2 bolt/chain anchor. You can sling patina to protect the opening moves if you want.

Route name is 'Bellissimo'. FA Chris Barnes 3 or 4 years ago. I usually start it 20 feet or so left of Pollo Negro. Boulder up through a small bulge (gear optional) and scramble up the easy slab to the first bolt.
