I'm curious what the problem that starts on the low Cave problem start but comes out to the lip up and left. You can see in this picture to the climber's left.

Hey Doug - these descriptions have all the info, V6 is the upper start and apparently as hard as V11 the further down in the cave you start: castlewoodcanyonbouldering.blo....

Thanks Andy...I was curious about this and went out and worked it on 7/19. There is a sit start at an inverted, triangular hold that allows for a long right hand to a half pad 4-finger edge up and right. More difficulty ensues as you work the left avoiding all lip T. holds, bump right hand to a slightly better hold, bring the left up and left to a tiny crimp, and go again to the lip with the left to finish up on the traverse. Felt harder than V9, so once I can link it, I'll be stoked! Still glad to see Castlewood free of hordes! Not as quiet as the late eighties but still nowhere near as busy a place as anything you'd find in Boulder.
