A truly memorable climbing experience. Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced… customized to your needs and experience level.
This tower is a great introduction to multi-pitch climbing, and the perfect desert spire for your first foray into the magical sandstone towers of the Colorado Plateau. Right out of a Dr. Seuss book, this phenomenal tower boasts the tiniest and most gravity-defying summit imaginable! Don’t let the 5.10 rating fool you, most of the climbing is no harder than 5.8, with the harder moves bypassed with a bit of direct aid.
Castleton is steeped in history and it just may be the West’s most famous stone tower, qualifying as one of the Fifty Classic Climbs of North America. A striking sentinel that overlooks Castle Valley and the Colorado River, this rock offers a choice of two mega-classic routes of the same difficulty (one shady, one sunny). This is a big day with great exposure and airy rappels.
