Pitch 2, I think


A great two pitch addition to Conroy's Castle; a bit like Charolette's Web without the tricky sequences and more continuity on the 2 pitches. The first pitch is nice 5.8 face climbing, and the second was also good-- perhaps a touch harder.


Left of Charolette's Web, an obvious wear streak.


Bolts. Easily led in 1 pitch with ~10 draws.

Linked it together, there's really no reason this, Charlotte's Web or MOMD should be two pitches. Anyhow, thought this was nicer than Charlotte's Web, though less interesting/difficult.

This is a fun romp, and while you can link the two pitches its more fun to practice some multi-pitch station management, and a better way to enjoy the great views. Also, unless you haul two ropes up, you ll need to make two raps to get down from the top. The climbing is consistent, however I gave it a PG13 rating as the space between bolts is more than your typical sport climb and a new leader, attracted by the easy grade, might get spooked and a fall between some of the bolts would not be pleasant.
