Castle Rock may have the most difficult ratings in Washington. Frankly, anything other than the easy routes scare me there. Climbed Angel Crack, Midway, Cat Burgler, and Saber.

We ended up climbing here several times after we got booted off of Rainier because of crappy conditions. Great rock and easy access make this a fun place to climb.

Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2010

climbingmonk

Pleasant in the morning but bloody hot in the afternoon. Maze of climber paths made locating routes the first time tricky, but once we had a few reference points life was good. Canary was great but got shut down on the roof of P1, (hands were toast!). Rats nest of rap slings under roof tells me I'm not the only one. Lovely rock, good holds, only slightly polished by popularity. Crack looked like a museum for old pitons.

... I took the trail to the top of Castle Rock. After having passed by the trailhead MANY times through the years, I was determined to check out the area. The views at the top were spectacular! I met a rock climbing group heading up "Midway", and they got me interested in returning another time so I can go up the direct route rather than the trail... once I get more comfortable with rock climbing.

Spent a few hours climbing at Castle Rock, until we got tired of the heat. Started on pitch 1 of The Fault (5.6), then climbed Catapult (5.8) to reach Logger's Ledge. Did Canary (5.8) in two pitches, which was stellar...nice exposed move followed by intricate face climbing. Descended back to Logger's Ledge and climbed Midway Direct (5.6) in two pitches to the top again and then descended to the car. A nice day despite the heat.

baloodh2000Crack of Doom / Old Grey Mair / South Face / others  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 9, 2008

baloodh2000

First "Bigger Wall" experience. Have only previously climbed at Vantage and some of the easier stuff up icicle. No way in hell 5.8 is 5.8 at Castlerock. Felt like my climbing took about 2 gigantic leaps backwards as far as ability goes. Seconded Crack of Doom. Could barely hold on let alone pull pieces. Finally made it though after some hang dogging. South Face felt true to its grade and the top of Jello Tower is beautiful. Snow was still an issue on the approach and next to Jello tower on the North side. Belayed next to an iceberg, pretty cold. Will definitely be back. My Muscles are shot.
