Some interesting moves along the way up to a high rock feature.

Up the obvious gully to its top, then turn left to top of "guard tower".

Warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.


Obvious gully in the right side of the Shadow Castle wall, which is a bit right from under the high "guard tower" which is at the top of the cliff.


Top-Roping: see directions for top anchor for Shadow Castle area.

Protection for trad Leading of lower 75% is standard Trad rack. Protection for upper 25% is unknown.
