This is a great route with a surprise start. I thought it would be strictly a face route viewing from the approach path but there are several good hard moves inching up the crack to reach the second bolt. Once clipped to the second bolt, the route moves onto the face on small but secure holds. Clipping the third bolt is a bit nervy but not too bad. Up the face to the overhang where you will be glad to get in some trad gear. A fun, not so obvious move gets you on top of the block and then one more move lands you on top. All in all a great route, and for us, a great way to end the day!


4 bolts to upper overhang and then a couple mid size trad pieces (3/4" to 2") go in nicely to protect the move around the overhang. If you are 5.10" tall, you can just reach one of the top anchors to protect the last move to the top.

Excellent route! Probably the best at the crag, and one of the best at the grade in CRSP. Apr 23, 2010

Great route, requires good footwork and a few long reaches. It gets sun all day, so it's a great place to climb in the winter. Jan 19, 2012

The 'biners at the top are showing serious wear with sharp edges. Dec 1, 2017

I climb 5.11s at castle rock and was unable to make it to the second bolt. Am I missing something? Sep 15, 2018
