This fine route goes to the left of the large landmark roof of the Vulture Walls. There is good pro, good holds and plenty of ledges. This is one of the longer trad routes I've done at CWood.

Start by climbing up the first tiered dihedral with one reachy move. Climb next two tiers using the thin crack and tier edges. Once you get on the large ledge above the roof, climb up the flake in the corner, and put in some pro. I found the crux to be pulling this infamous "topless" Castlewood finish.

  • Caution one underclinging hold just below the top is very hollow sounding and loose*


Nuts, medium cams, 1 or 2 large cams, and a long sling to anchor off a tree on top.

Didn't even use a single cam, plenty of opportunities to get your feet set, easy to place pro. Very enjoyable, tall for the Wood, go climb it.
