Description

Red Rib is a long, beautiful, single pitch route (~200 feet--you'll need two ropes to descend safely) up the SW ridge of Castle Rock. Great position and good exposure are it's strongest points. The crux is right off the ground but the climbing remains interesting and in the 5.9/10- range for most of the first ~150'. From here, it's an easier romp to the anchors.
This route is a full 60 meter rope length.

Location

The far right side of the Southwest Side of Castle Rock, it heads up the obvious rib just past the left side of the South Face.

Protection

All bolts(don't remember the count for this long route but probably in the range of 14-16). Rap anchors at the top. 2-60 meter ropes to rap straight down to the ground.
