This is a more strenuous version of the first 2 pitches of Gothic Pillar. The 2nd lead is the steepest pitch on Devil's Castle...great, exposed pitch.


Begin about 40' left of Gothic Pillar. Climb straight up 90' to a small stance (5.9). Pitch 2, make a short traverse right. Ascend the steep face above (5.11a) to a narrow ledge at the midway slabs. Rap here (60M)or continue up the Gothic pillar.


Bring Just Draws and runners. All fixed pro and belays.
