The name sums it up. Easy until the final offwidth section which is like trying to climb through the constriction of an egg-timer. "Large Friends help - one above pulling and one below pushing works best." UK grade HVS 5b or Vedauwoo 5.7.


This wide crack is obvious at the left end of Castle Rock. A flat grassy area lies at the base of the crag.


Large cams for the top section
