DescriptionOverall excellent, but docked a star because the roof midway has no visible means of support. Climb up the enjoyable corner w/ good gear to the roof. At that point, either heedlessly yard straight over the roof, or ease around it to the left (pro not as good, small cams, RP). Then traverse right, with feet on the roof and regain sounder rock and a vertical crack. Up this for a couple moves until it makes sense to switch to the next crack right (crux). A couple of more moves gets you to a gear belay at ledges.
Descent: walk to top of pillar and either make a ~80' rap off tat around a block or downclimb gully to SE.
Belayer should probably be well off to the left in case the roof cuts loose. Somewhat vegetated.
LocationThe most obvious line on the west face of Castaway, the prominent, right-facing corner which leads to a roof and then cracks on a short headwall, about 10m left of What's My Line.
