DescriptionThis route ascends the cleft between the two big chunks of the Castle itself. Look for a big chimney feature in a right facing flake feature directly below some blocky roofs. All pitches are between 100 & 140.
P1 5.8 Chimney your way up miscellaneous stuff for about 125 to a ledge.
P2 5.9- - Follow the main corner/cracks up and slightly leftwards to a belay ledge.
P3 Head up & right across the main chimney system to more a more appealing looking crack. Continue up to a roof which is passed on the right side (crux) and then up to a belay.
P4 Head left towards a right-facing corner and then up a crack system to the final slabs.
LocationThe major chimney system that splits the main crag halfway between The Nose route and the big, tree filled gully.
