Some interesting moves along the way up to a high rock feature.

Up the obvious gully to its top, then turn left to top of "guard tower".

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).


Obvious gully in the right side of the Shadow Castle wall, which is a bit right from under the high "guard tower" which is at the top of the cliff.


Top-Roping: see directions for top anchor for Shadow Castle area.
