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


Located on the northeast side of Zone 2, north of the Brothers and Comp Wall formations and northeast of the Taco. North facing crag which stays in the shade for most of a July day. Great rock and fun routes, all quality. Steep and pumpy.

Getting There 

Best approach may be the trail past the west side of the Taco. Head past the east end of the Upper Brother formation (due west of the Taco) and contour around to the north, taking care to not cut over into the southwest side of the Tidal Wave formation. Stay to the east and aim for the northeast portion of the wall. Another approach may be to follow the road past Fenceline Spire, then follow the Black Creek drainage west until you can see the Tidal Wave formation. Could also stay on the road and after it passes Goldwing and transitions from the southwest to west, look for the Tidal Wave.

The moves may seem hard to find from the bottom but once you get up on the wall the holds are all there. This is the funnest route on the wall and well worth the hike. The summit of this wall can be reached by scrambling up from these chains, be very careful getting back to the chains. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
