Comments: I think some rap anchors up there would be a great idea. Although the walk off is pretty easy, it seems to make sense as there are anchors on the second pitch.

Comments: Outstanding climb on some sections of undesirable rock. The exposure and sustained nature makes this a worthwhile venture.

Comments: Does anybody know why there is lumber on top of the rectory. While on top we found a 4ft 4x4 and some other smaller pieces. I know that the lumber on top of Castleton was the result of a car commercial does anybody know why there is similar stuff on top of the Rectory?
