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


Climb the face just right of Gullet, ending at a lower anchor. Clip two bolts on the low-angle part then head to your right. Bolts follow a jagged arete then up to slab.


Same approach as The Patriot and Gullet. Turn right where Patriot goes left. Benches for belay!


At least 6 bolts. Page contributor didn't climb this route!

Tough little move right on the steep arete, but the bolt is right there.
