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.
