Situated in a rolling woodland some three thousand feet above the Silicon Valley, in summer Castle Rock attracts many boulderers and climbers. The 50-foot Castle Rock (el. 3,214') boast a number of worthy TRs, some of which like "Aeronautical Engineer" (5.11b), "Mega Blast" (5.10c) and "Farewell to Arms" (5.10a) are established local classics. The surrounding area also contains dozens of uniquely shaped boulders, like the Beak, the Spoon, the Pyramid, and the Magoos, all within a few minutes walk of the main east face.
Walking up a wide trail about 1/4 mile from the Main Castle Rock State Park parking lot will bring you to the center of the action.
Addendum: There are 2 trails that for a loop that go to Castle Rock. The left trail out of the parking lot seems easier.
Weather station 4.6 miles from here
