DescriptionOne of the Castle Rock classics.
P1 (5.10b) - Climb the technical slab. Footwork is key. Finish pitch by breaking left and pulling up through tree to double bolt anchors. 25m.
P2 (5.9) - Technically an easy pitch, but bolting can be a little spaced and easy to get off route if not careful. Start up the face and through a small overhang, then follow the bolts up the face to the next anchors. 30m.
P3 (5.10c) - The best pitch of the route. From the belay head up easy ground on large holds up to a groove and small overhang. Clip the chain bolt and pull through to the above face (crux). An exposed rising traverse takes you to the next belay ledge. 3 star climbing in an exposed setting. 35m.
P4 (5.9) - An easy pitch to finish featuring a large phallic hold. 30m
To descend walk to the right, where you will find a public walking track leading down.
