Description 

Fun and technical climbing up high quality rock make this a worthwhile climb when in the area. Although it's not a long climb, you might notice a good pump when clipping the final bolt and pulling onto the slab below the anchors.

I think the name is a reference to the derelict car in the forest that appears to have been used for target practice.


Location 

This is the first climb considered to be on Conroy's Castle rather than the Forgotten Wall, although the two walls are contiguous. This climb is where the wall starts to curve to the south.


Protection 

6 bolts and bolted anchors

This is one of my favorite routes at Chek. Reasonably technical and thoughtful climbing all the way up. Great fun.

Thoughtfully bolted. Requires a bit of problem-solving but very pleasant throughout. Interesting cruxes with adequate rests in reasonable places. Soft for the grade.
