Falcon Nesting Closure at Castle Rock MORE INFO >>>


A great climb firing straight up the middle of the North Lump. After a tricky start you're rewarded with more tricky edging and smearing through the first ~7 bolts, after which you finally reach a comfortable rest.

Great movement, delicate footwork, and sustained until it eases for the last 1/3 of the climb.


The line near the center of the North Lump. This starts in the manzanita about 30 ft left of Don't Stress and the other climbs on the right slab of North Lump.

Probably worth bringing a brush for now. With little traffic some of the holds get dusty.
