About Pincushion Wall:

One of the few sport walls yet developed in the Crags. Low angled slab face, many bolted routes, variations a plenty. Basically pick a line, and other than Snag (furthest left) it is basically going to be between 5.9 and 5.10b. Most will finish in the anchor in the small alchove to the right of the upper dihedral.
Approach: Take Castle Dome trail approx. 1 hr 15 min to the first rock walls you see (Newspaper ledge to the left) From Newspaper ledge, scramble through the notch and turn right up the hill. You will immediately come to a low-angled face festooned with bolts. (taken from Falcon Castle Crags).
Approach Time: 1 hr. 15 min
