This is a more strenuous version of the first 2 pitches of Gothic Pillar.
Begin about 40' left of Gothic Pillar. Climb straight up 90' to a small stance (5.9). Make a short traverse right. Ascend the steep face above (5.11) to a narrow ledge at the midway slabs. Rap here (60M)or continue up the Gothic pillar.
Bring Just Draws and runners. All fixed pro and belays.

Great first pitch - still some loose stuff here and there (like most routes on the Castle) the second pitch though very well protected is a bit scary as the rock appears to be solid but going through a series roofs with rock like this - Yikes.
