Description Suggest change

This is one of the first routes on the west side gully on Castle Rock. There are 3 pitches with each being ~ 100 ft long. The 3rd pitch leads left to join the 3rd and last fixed anchor on Zinger. A harder variation for the 3rd pitch (Fruit Filling - 5.10c) goes straight up the bare granite face above the 2nd anchor and into a wee crack and leaning corner that require gear.

The first pitch angles up and right through two small roofs. The 2nd pitch is easy face climbing on granite.  The 3rd pitch arcs left from the 2nd anchor to join the 3rd and last anchor on Zinger.

Rap x3 with one 60M rope.
