Description

A series of several fun boulder problems stacked on top of each other. Overhung jamming and stemming off the ground followed by a series of mantles and slabby face moves. Pumpy finish out of a little alcove.

Location

South face of Castle Rock proper. Just to the right of the Waimea Wall boulder problem.

Protection

TR from the metal pole on the summit with long slings (15ft). Could be led with gear. A bolt protects the last move.

lead it on gear, used a #3 BD C4, a #0.5 BD C4, and a white Tricam for the crack, ran the rest up the ramp to weave around to the top pipe to rap down. really burly start for 10a, very PG-13/R between the top of the crack and the bolt on the headwall about 15 feet up, wouldn't run it out without either a toprope or a better grade to brag about...

Really fun sequence of bouldery moves to ledges. Don't think it's more than 10a with solid beta. Would be a heady lead though! Aug 24, 2012

I would rate this much higher than the going rate of 5.10a. Lots of strong, powerful moves required. It gets me breathing heavy. But lots of fun. Jul 16, 2012
