Zorro 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  California : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Castle Rock - North Face
Head up a thin crack to a roof. Pass the roof on its right side. Follow a wider crack up past a hollow downward pointing flake, then up and left along discontinuous cracks. Climb ends at a nice tree with great views of the lake. For fun you can top out with a 5.0 pitch. Otherwise, head back to a rap station 50' behind the tree.I think the start may be a tad harder than 10a, but I'll go with the guide rating here....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
