East Sector of Castle Rocks
The eastern sector of Castle Rocks
is a scattered, spread of monoliths, domes and faces. More of an adventure lies to those who travel here, but great climbing awaits. The closest and more recognized crag here includes the famous Comp Wall
. These are some of the more stunning crags and most concentrated. The majority of this sector is comprised of smaller, less obvious, and sometimes hard to locate crags.
Approach time will vary, but most crags will be found by breaking off the main double-track road/trail that leads to the very end of the sector.
The best approach is from the Ranch House parking area. Walk along the double-track road that skirts the cattle fence. Look for signs to designated crags. Expect about a half-mile walk and don't bushwack, theres a trail for every crag.

The best crux gear consists of medium hexs, since the crack flares in the back. Fire the crux sequence with poor feet and hit a jug above the the overhang. There is a short section of poor rock at this point. Also, watch your gear placements at the lip...[more] Browse More Classics in ID
