Castle Crags of Granite

The spectacular Castle Crags are made of granite that cooled slowly deep within the earth. Over time, this granitic pluton was uplifted and the rock above it worn away. Once the granite was exposed to the elements, water and ice have taken over as the main sculpting forces, breaking fractures in the rock, creating the castle-like features.
