The south face of Competition Wall

Description 

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).


Getting There 

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.

This is one of prettiest 5.11 crack lines at the City and Castle Rocks. The rating has been documented as 5.11a, but the moves at the overhang are stiff and a little bit heady for the grade.P1: Follow a shallow RF dihedral to the small overhang. 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.
