Follow the bolt line up the obvious slab, step across the top of the large flake and continue up steeper easy patina to the anchors.


This route is essentially an alternate safer and more fun approach pitch for El Castleton and all the new routes further to the left. Start on the slab just left of the staging area of Red Rib. You can also climb the crack just to the left to the top of the flake and follow the bolts to the anchors to make the route 5.7. The anchors provide an easy way off the large slab below El Castleton instead of having to down climb around the large chockstone in the gully. Single rope rappel to the ground.
