While not a brilliant crag by Arapiles standards, Castle Crag does merit agenda consideration, primarily as possibly the most convenient crag at Araps: it's close to camp, has fixed rap anchors and has routes facing N,S,E and W so you can almost always find something climatically appropriate. CC is also pretty stacked in the 25-26 range (lower half of 5.12). Dec 10, 2007
