Getting There 

Park where the Castle Rock loop road joins the Boulder Canyon Highway at its east (downstream) end. The wall can be seen up the hillside to the northeast, partially obscured by some large trees. It is to the right of the obvious rock with a large dike and a crack. The best approach to the cliff is from the left.

Now an interesting crag with the routes getting harder from left to right. Some are quite hard, but also quite short.
