Description

Start in the right-facing dihedral and stem up high. Undercling and reach high for a small pocket. Finish with another reach for a higher pocket. This is a pretty fun sequence of moves.

Protection

Use the tree on top with a few long slings.

There are two bolts with chains on top of this climb.

Cool moves over the roof, and the rare non-grating hand jam in the dihedral below. Mar 21, 2003

One of the bolts is an old-style welded affair, and the other is a hair loose. I don't think they're going anywhere. This route is THIN. The rock in this small area chews up your hands something fierce. May 22, 2006

Solid climb. The undercling and a long reach are a must...or look around the arete for a crimp to the reach. Nov 22, 2007

Our favorite route of the day on our first visit to Castlewood.
The bolts are good but are below the summit a little bit. One can easily tie off to a tree 10 feet back. Nov 14, 2011
