DescriptionThe first pitch climbs an easy crack to a left-arching dihedral. Climb out the arch to a vertical, left-facing dihedral, and climb up to the stance (marked as 1 in the photo), 5.9.
The second pitch follows the crack straight up (crux) and then traverses left to another crack. The crack is fairly small (RPs/HBs) until you reach the traverse. These are very nice delicate moves. It is brass city.
I thought I'd put it on the map as a VFA (virtual FA). It was climbed in the late '80s/early '90s. If anyone has conflicting information, please let me know.
LocationThis route starts to the right of the prominent arete on the left side of the central Castle face. Find the striking 5.10 dihedral on the left side of the face and count the cracks from left to right. Crack number 4 is Uncle Wiggly. It looks like this climber is on the 2nd pitch:
