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


Start at flake and climb up the flake/shallow right facing corner until you can move left under a small overlap. Continue through the overlap on the left side and crimp up small edges to gain a blunt arete. Eventually the angle eases and bigger holds appear. The climbing continues up a pleasant slab to the anchors. Thanks goes to Brad Shilling for gifting this FA to Chris and I and for his initial cleaning of moss and lichen on this line.


About 70 feet right of Jolly Rancher. Start near a tree on the north side/arete of the Eagle Rock and locate a right facing flake/corner.


12 or so quickdraws.

The bottom section of this route deserves 4-stars. A great route and nice addition to the Castles.
