  • Description 

    Climb up the bulging north face via some cool sloper/slapping moves to the top-out. It is a very cool line and much harder than it first appears. It's a must do on the "Castle Rock Cube," A.K.A. the Citadel Boulder.


    This is located on the "Castle Rock Cube which is just little east of the "Castle Rock" formation down by the river.


    A few pads and a spot.
