Britta on the middle variation start to Free Range...
|BLM Managed Lands at Castle Rocks CLOSED TO CLIMBING!! Castle Rocks State Park lands are OPEN TO CLIMBING MORE INFO >>>|
Pick one of three starts (left - finger crack layback, right - short hand crack in corner, middle - short overhanging hand crack). Middle crack is recommended. All three variations for the start are approximately 5.8 in difficulty.
From the low angle slab past the short, intial steep section, aim for the thin crack that is straight up the face, which cuts through the summit ridge. Horizontal cracks, up over laps, then up to thin crack. Follow crack up then slightly right to finish on slightly overhanging rock.
East side of Fenceline rock. At the base of the middle of the low angle slab (on the right-most side of the east face), look for the thin crack which bisects the ridge line on top of formation.
Rappel route. 70m rope works for this rappel, or, angle over to the climber's right and down climb trough/shallow low angle chimney.
Standard rack with three protection bolts on the upper portion of the route. Fixed rappel anchor at top, just below ridge crest and climber's left of the crack.
