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


Sweet 17 is a fin of rock just north east of the Comp Rock - East Face area. It's a large formation of good rock offering a few sport routes and a few mixed gear routes with most of the routes being in the 5.10 range. The fin faces north/south so the formation offers climbing on the west side as well as the east side so you can choose sun or shade.

Getting There 

From the CRSP Ranch House, follow the trails for the Comp Wall Slabs and take a trail that goes between the Wedding Bell and the north east end of the Comp Wall.

(I broke two holds in the first 15' of the route in Sept. 2008.)Pull the crux around the 4th bolt into less steep and easier but run-out climbing past a few more bolts to the bolted anchor. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
