Description

King Otto's Castle is a large imposing formation directly behind some campsites with numerous routes from 5.7 to 5.12 on it's south and west faces. Face climbing is primarily the name of the game here but a few decent cracks exist as well.

Due to it's location remember to be courteous and ask before climbing here if the campsites are occupied.

Some of the better routes here include Sweat Band (5.10c), Goodbye Mr. Bond (5.10c), Casino Royale (5.11a) and Panama Red (5.11c TR).

Location

Located in the center of the campground directly across the road from Condor Rock.

What is the bolted route between Panama Red and Sweat Band? It uses the first two bolts of Sweat Band, then traverses up and left to a third bolt, then onto the seam of Panama Red. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks. Jan 5, 2011
