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

Description 

A fun jaunt up a variety of features.

Start on the slab, a little steep bit on jugs, then another slab, to the steeper featured face.

Route seems to go with a single 60m rope but be darn careful with any top roping. Tie a knot in the end!!!

Bueno!

Location 

Route is located just to the right of the obvious corner crack Bandito.

Rappel route.

Protection 

Bolted sports route. Around a dozen quickdraws to a bolted anchor.
