Description

Up the face to the lower long roof. Traverse right to the end of this roof, then up the nose to pass just left of the higher right roof, up to a wide ledge with a small tree or two. Optionally make a last thoughtful move to the top of the cliff just left of The Keep.

Warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2015. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location

A ways left of the obvious gully at the right end of the Shadow Castle wall, below a long roof with a higher shorter roof above right of it, which is under the high "guard tower".

Protection
