BETA PHOTO: Castle Rock's West Face

Description 

West facing and often much sunnier and warmer than the Trinity Aretes. Nice views from its high position and very secluded.

Getting There 

Depending on how you traveresed the hill getting to the rock, you should end up at the west face after scrambling over a couple of boulders at it's base. The first bolted line you come to is Up On Top, Ma (5.9). There is a 5.8 mixed route just to the right of this, Oedipus.
