This is the sustained, tight-hands crack located on the climbers' right side wall at the entrance of the mountaineer's gully. There is no real crux to this climb, but if you've gotten through the first hundred feet you're probably on your way to the send. There used to be a loose flake in the pod about 80 feet up, but last checked it wasn't there. Make sure you have finger and thin-hand-size gear left after the last roof as the climb keeps going although difficulty eases. Set up a belay at the obvious shelf with finger-size pro. The scramble off is obvious from the belay. A photo of the route can be viewed if you click on the pic of the Turret on the Castle web page.


Locate the mountaineer's gully which is prominent thrashfest a few hundred feet right of the large open area where Throne Room and The Dungeon are located. At the entrance to the gully, the right wall has three cracks running through it. Rapunzal is the center, best-looking line. Scramble 10' up to a nice ledge and rope up there.

The crack to the right was done by Lou Bartell in early '90s and has long offwith stretches up high although you can do a short version and lower off some fixed slings rabbit runnered through a hole.
