This route is in the clean, left-facing book corner to the west of the Rat cracks. The climb is partially hidden from below by some boulders below it. It is a clean corner with good pro, providing a great moderate lead especially for Castlewood.


Standard trad rack up to #2 cam

Good for a first lead. Too bad its so short!! May 5, 2003
Agreed on shortness. However, it is a good warm up for folks practicing pro. That crack gobbles up small cams. I placed pro every three feet just for practice.

I thought the climb could be made a tad harder if one forced themselves to not use the nice bucket footholds on the face and dihedral and instead sent it with feet in the crack only.
