Castle Rock

Castle Rock garnered little attention when it was first developed since the rock is not great quality and didn't hold the gear of that time very well. With the explosion of sport climbing it has seen much development and will probably see more in the future. There are some decent climbs on volcanic rock that can be a little loose. But the views are excellent and the fifteen minute approach is mostly flat. The climbs range from 5.7 to the mid 5.11s with most around 5.10+. Many are easily toproped and most are well bolted. Generally 6 draws plus any to build an anchor are all that is required.
