Comments: A truly beautiful route that rewards slow static foot movements, creative sequencing, unbelievable body tension on nothing foot bumps, and above all, strong mental focus. The mind is silent with concentration much of the way through.

It took me 10+ burns across multiple sessions to send, a true labor of love.

Big but safe falls.

Castle Rock classic.

Comments: You can rap off the first belay station, but it's totally worth it to scramble up the 4th class rock pile and up the 5.5 traverse to the summit. The 360 degree view is out of this world!
