Description

Pitch 1: Climb 5.8 hands and fingers in a shallow corner system that trends left to right on soft rock and belay under a small roof (80 ft).

Pitch 2: Traverse right under the roof on sketchy, soft pegmatite and then go up the short, obvious finger crack on solid stone(5.10-). Continue to the top via discontinuous 5.9 crack (135 ft).

With the soft nature of much of the rock, and lack of sustained climbing, this route is hardly three stars as the guide book suggests.

Location

The route ascends the only obvious line on the south face of Castle Rock.

Protection

BD #0.3 - #4, set of stoppers, (1) extra #3, slings. Rap 60 ft from slings around boulder on north side of landform.
