Description

An interesting start leads to the first clip . Climbing up fun jugs on a gently overhanging wall ensues for three more clips to a bolted anchor .

A really fun climb reminiscent of a gym route . Well bolted with a clean airball if you should falter . "Great for running laps" .

Location

On the east (right) side of the jagged arete .

Protection

Four bolts to chain anchor

Watch out for a large tree that grows very close to the climb. A large fall might end you scraping along it on your way down. A pretty good route for Castle Rock standards though. Nov 30, 2009

This climb is a ton of fun. Tough to spot the beta around the 2nd bolt (coming out of the overhang) which I thought added to the difficulty. Other than that, big holds + big moves makes for a great climb Jul 25, 2016

This is a really cool route with big holds and some really cool movement. Also, this rock is much less visited than it's neighbor Indian Rock, so it is worth checking out if Indian Rock is too crowded for your liking. May 29, 2018
