True Grit 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Castle Rock - South Side
This short face climb is on the south face of Castle Rock, sporting bolts up a rounded ramp of sorts. It has arguably the lowest placed protection bolt I've ever seen (see photo). Climbing directly to this bolt is probably the hardest move, although it is easily circumnavigated by climbing the trough just a few feet to the right then up the route....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
