Davids Castle Wall Handle With Care(5.6) trad Cr...


I was pleasantly surprise by this route. Look for a small left facing crack/dihedral with a sweet jug ledge on it's cliff right face.

Crack climb or lieback on this well protected start that leads to four more sections of casual, exposed, traditional, climbing on less traveled rock. Although the climbing is casual the rock quality is less than ideal. The protection is good for Crowders standards, if this route saw some top rope action it would clean up well.

Build a natural anchor for a top rope set up. A great climb for introductory climbers.


North Carolina Trad Rack- small - large gear (hexes work great).

Natural Anchor


Look for the last left facing dihedral cliff right on Davids Castle Wall. It leads to a huge left facing flake and then to a ledge with another well protected section leading to the top of David Castle Wall.
