Description 

Start on Electra (5.10c). After the second bolt traverse cliff left on to the seam that runs parallel to Electra (5.10c). Follow this crack system all the way up to the top of Davids Castle towards the big pine tree. Build an anchor to belay your second up then scramble off or rappel off of the OOGA CHOCKA rings (if no one is on the route).

Options -

1) Shorten this long pitch into two shorter pitches by traversing right to the 'Electra' anchor. Rappel from here to avoid having to walk off but you are cutting short this long sustained route.


Location 

Right of 'Between the Betwix'.

Left of 'Caterpillar'.

Follow the line of least resistance and most protection up and either traverse right to the 'Electra' anchor or climb up to the top and make a natural anchor.


Protection 

North Carolina Trad Rack. Micro to medium gear. Two bolts from 'Electra'.

Two bolt anchor with rings if you traverse right to the 'Electra' anchor.

Natural anchor if you choose to climb to the top. This route is less traveled so be wary of poor quality rock near the top.
