Up the face to the lower long roof. Traverse right to the end of this roof, then up the nose to pass just left of the higher right roof, up to a wide ledge with a small tree or two. Optionally make a last thoughtful move to the top of the cliff just left of The Keep.

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.


A ways left of the obvious gully at the right end of the Shadow Castle wall, below a long roof with a higher shorter roof above right of it, which is under the high "guard tower".


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

Protection for trad Leading is unknown.
