Private Land-gate closed and locked by nightfall. MORE INFO >>>


A small south facing tower ~40ft in height embedded in the hill behind it which leads up to the summit. The formation is shaped like a thin tetrahedron with the edge facing south; thus there is a southwest face (climber left) and southeast face (climber right). Some great, overlooked lines here, though they tend to be a bit run out. Much more secluded than Middle Earth and Boyscout, and not many hikers scramble here as compared to the westview slabs.

Getting There 

Park at the westview parking area and follow the green trail, as if going to Middle Earth. Castle rock will be to the left of the stairs, directly across from Middle Earth and downhill (west) from Boyscout.

Climbing Season

(described in Mark Kochte's Climb Maryland!). On the right side of Castle Rock there is a low roof. An easy start on a jug gets harder very quickly. Go up lots of tiny holds - you get a bit of a rest on a slab underneath a 2 ft roof. Stay right out of the corner to go up over the roof....[more]   Browse More Classics in Maryland
