Like the rest of Castle Rock, this rock consists of sandstone, with routes ranging from 20 feet to ~60 feet in length. Climbing is primarily sport, though a mixed route and a few trad routes also exist. Toprope potential exists on all climbs, though setting up a top rope on the northern climbs deserves some caution due to the exposure on the top of Indian Rock.
Approach time: 3 - 5 minutes.
