P girl strolls up the Mountain Mahogany
|BLM Managed Lands at Castle Rocks CLOSED TO CLIMBING!! Castle Rocks State Park lands are OPEN TO CLIMBING MORE INFO >>>|
Great, juggy route.
Easy flare start leads to "OMG" holds all the way up, with a very short stretch of pure hand crack for a move or two.
Mostly a face climb with drop in pro nearly anywhere, and, a variety of sizes.
With a single 60m, rope, belay at the anchor then rappel, carefully, back down with the rope ends barely reaching the ground.
DO NOT LOWER OFF WITH A 60 METER ROPE!!!! It won't reach. Tie a knot in the belay end or have both people tie in.
First route to the left of Jug-a-Lug.
Climb up then left to the anchor on Dark Rock, Good Rock.
No fixed gear. Standard rack works great. Could use up to a 4 camalot but there's many opportunities for different sizes of pro.

Rick, I note there's a route to the left known as Dark Rock, Good Rock. This route is just to the right of that route I think.

5.7+ seems pretty ambitious... feels more like 5.6.
