About The Castle:

This is located at the end of FS-550 near Lake Wellington. This area features a multitude of multipitch crack climbs on the large main formation above the west side of the lake.
Approach: From the camping area there are several options. The worst is to beeline it toward the rock. The second is to take the waterfall trail til you're closest to the rock and then bushwack uphill. The best option seems to be to take the waterfall trail near the Boy Scout camp and then follow another trail up the hill. Apparently there is a trail that's been constructed all the way up. Good luck finding that.
Approach Time: 1 hr.
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: Be careful of trespassing on Boy Scout property. The fee to climb here is $9 a person.
Rock Type: Granite
Type of Climbing: Trad
Sun Aspect: All Day Sun
