There are a number of pitons and fp's at belays. P7 is topped off by a big boulder and creating an anchor is difficult. Mountain Projecct has the best descriptionof this route.

Another day, another dollar on Castle. Fine enough route, not as pinned as Brewers which was nice. That 6th pitch wanders, I got off route a little there. This is a really shady route and I recommend it for a hot day. 6 of us on Castle face climbs this day. Incredible weather. Cheers.
