Description 

Short steep and pumpy with a reachy crux about halfway up. Kastor is a classic route even though its short and is hard from the moment you leave the ground.

Location 

Kastor is located on the right side of the cave, look for two large holes about 30' up the route.

Protection 

Bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Maybe it was a combination of greasy and seeping holds, but this felt more like 12a- to me.

Get a knee bar in the right spot and this route drops a grade or two. Almost feels like cheating!
