Description 

The large eastern face of Castle Rock covers the area from the edge of the North Wall to the edge of the South Face. It has a mix of sport, trad, and mixed, bolt and gear routes. Shade in the afternoon. Less crowded than the west side of Castle Rock.

Getting There 

The fastest approach is to take the south road/trail from the trailhead, and head north on the trail that goes along the east front of the rock. Look for a flagged sign for Crimson Arete and follow the trail uphill to the left. The majority of the routes are in the "notch" on the east face and are reached by the Crimson Arete trail.

Becky headed up the surprisingly good Deadwood.

Deadwood 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  ID : Castle Rocks : ... : Castle Rock - East Face
This somewhat uninspiring looking line has continuously challenging and interesting moves. The crux for most people is likely to be the final bulge move before the anchors. A small roof/bulge move 1/3rd up may be the crux for others. The rock is a little gritty at the start of the route but is good the rest of the way. Deadwood had a large variety of fun moves. The climbing reminds me somewhat of some of the routes at Lover's Leap (CA). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
