Description 

The North Wall is a good place to get out of the sun on hot days and has several very worth while lines. The rock quality of the routes here is not as superb as the west side but is still good. Routes here tend to be a little "dirty" and with some lichen. This area has several bolted lines along with some gear lines. The far right side of this wall is just around the corner from The Crack House. In spite of being closer to the trailhead than the popular westside, this area receives less traffic and often you can have the wall to yourself.


Getting There 

Follow any one of the trail/roads coming from the trailhead going west, and head to the north corner of Castle Rock. The North Wall is on the left of this, around the corner from The Crack House.

This arete route has a lot of enjoyable moves and a good position but is somewhat contrived in a couple spots. The start can be skipped by scrambling up some boulders to the right and stepping onto the route above the first bolt, and the crux (just below the roof/right-veering crack) can be by-passed by following the chalked holds left a few feet to the crack and then heading back up and right. Avoiding the crux makes the route around 10b. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID

The area is called Milk Toast in the Bingham guide. There are a total of six or seven climbs here from 10a on the left to the 11a on the right arete.
