Located to the right of Pigeon Wings and The Roofs. Starts off in a
thin crack. Meander up and left (10d) or right (10c) to a small alcove, then work your way up the groove.Some call it the best crack in the SB's,that is debatable.


Located on the south face of Castle Rock, to the right of Pigeon Wings and The Roofs and to the left of Grappling Hooks (dihedral)

Didn't this route used to be called Machu Picchu back in the 90's? I'm at work now and my guide book is at home.

Wish I could add a photo I've got of me on it here. I just have photos as files. I don't facebook or do social media, so I don't have the pic posted where I can enter a URL for it. If anyone can help me out on posting it, I'd be glad to do so. I was able to post one of "Yours" on Suicide years ago. May 22, 2017

Very fun route. I started on the Grappling Hooks for the first 20-30 feet, then transferred over to Castle Crack for the second half of the pitch. Sep 6, 2016
