The south face of Competition Wall
This is the most impressive wall in Castle Rock. There is a mix of old routes from the competition and new routes. Bring a rack, since the majority of the routes require some gear.
The main attractions are Splitter (5.11), Shop and Compare (5.10a), and Companeros (5.10c).
Follow the road north out of the parking lot. There are signs leading to the upper comp wall. Don't turn off too soon, or you will need to scramble up slabs to the base. A good trail follows the the base of the cliff.

Angle back right to reach the steep juggy face above. P2: Continue up the wall with more steep climbing to belay on a good ledge. A small wire could be placed after the last bolt, but it is easier here.P3: Angle left to hit the arete for the final bolted pitch.I highly recommend linking P1 and P2 with a 70M rope.
