Description [Suggest Change]

Tihs is the obvious wide crack up the left side of the blank face of the lower part of the Castle. The climbing is fun and of a wide character. There is no rap station at the top of the crack, so either build one or continue up the ridge to the top of the Castle (best option).

This is a reasonable way to skip the 5.11 climbing of the direct line of Crudija Frio.

Location [Suggest Change]

Either descend all the way down the Castle/Tecolote gully and go north and up the obvious gully to the base of the face or descend the Castle/Tecolote gully half way and rap in from the shoulder.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Standard rack, plus some extra large sizes. Two 3s and two 4s would be nice to have.
