Description

Next line left of Red Rib, chimney up to first bolt or climb up slab to the left and into gully below first bolt. Not as traveled as Red Rib but worth the while.

Location

Just left of Red Rib. Rap into gully. I got my rope stuck here before so I pulled ropes up high and downclimbed the rest.

Protection

Mostly bolts with some gear placement (00 to 1") in the easier sections. I placed three cams. Chain anchors. Two 60M ropes.

Fun climb. The top 50 feet is run out 5.6 climbing to the chains. Only one crux down low. Red Rib is nice because it has two cruxes. Still a good route if your in the area. Oct 17, 2012

I'm relieved to know someone lies awake at night worrying about these things. . . I'll change the spelling immediately! Jul 7, 2006

Well...according to the guy who did the FA, its "Numbshull", and, I think Dave knows its a typo. Oh, and Harrison knows its his namesake route too. Too funny... Jul 7, 2006

It very well could be, however my Castle Rock guide book by Dave Bingham spells it with an "A". Given all the inconsistencies in the book could be a "U". Jul 6, 2006

I believe route name is "Numbshull" in honor of someone who wrote a letter to the editor of one of the climbing magazines about the Castle. Jul 6, 2006
