Castle Rock / Summit Rock

This is a popular rock climbing and bouldering area. Rocks are dirty (much moss, lichen, and sand from use) but the area is well mapped and there are always an abundance of other climbers for getting good pointers on routes. Bring your chalk bag, sticky shoes, and a crash pad or gear. Goat rock is a very popular destination for climbers or those appreciating the sight and feel of a Swiss-cheese like rock. Castle Rock, Billy Goat Rock, and several other rocks and boulders are also popular for climbing and bouldering.
