Description:

Mediocre route on the bottom of the "Lower Tier" diagram in Morris's book. Route ascends a prominent arete. 2 upper bolts are on front of the arete; the lowest bolt is on the right side. Route ascends the left side of the arete, inside a cave--just reach around to clip the bolts. Standard Castle Rock scooped holds, but with some strange footwork on slightly overhanging rock.

2 out of 5 stars ascent note

I don't understand the bolt placement on this one. Specifically, the purpose of the first bolt. Also, are you supposed to climb around on the face, or tunnel through?

I went around the face which isn't terribly hard, but definitely harder than going through.
