David's Castle Wall Rock Climbing
Electra, Caterpillar, Energy Czar
This wall on the east side of the summit is easily identified by the tall chimney that cleaves it in two.
From the Practice Wall, a trail leads downhill and then turns right. First you will come to the backside of the wall. Continue to follow the trail around the corner, and you will eventually come to the chimney that splits the wall. This is the middle of David's Castle Wall.
