5 out of 5 stars Great route

As usual, the 5.7 is quite stiff :) you get used to it after a while...

2 out of 5 stars Not fun

My first ever trad lead. Awkward for a 5.4, and there were giant spiders on it.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb!

Way better than Allan's Layback IMO: the rock is not as polished yet :)
Unfortunately if you are tall you can cheat and you don't really have to layback. 2 stars for this approach.

4 out of 5 stars Fun and varied

Not sure if I have the right climb: start the same as Traverse, then go straight up/left. If you go left a lot, you join up with what I think is a 5.8.
Going straight up leads to some fun laybacking with no feet. A little hard to protect. Very top you can do a short offwidth chimney.
Altogether you can make this varied and hard (5.7).

The starting 10ft is getting more and more slick!
Harder than I remembered :)

4 out of 5 stars Awesome climb

One of my favourites (to lead) in the Castle Rock area -- nice fall to the right, long route, run-out bolts :)
It sucks when it's really dirty.

Direct start is waaay harder than 5.10a as noted below.
