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 number of routes in the area has more than doubled in recent years with lots of easy to moderate well bolted sport routes being added. Additionally the area is now well documented on mountainproject so you can expect the area to see a lot of traffic. There's plenty of routes though.
