Upper bit from the top.  Seems that #5 Camalots would be too small for some of this.  This might be an interesting climb to take photos from the inside out...wide enough to get a normal camera inside.

Comments: Did this yesterday. It looks like a hold might have broken off on the beginning of the second pitch, perhaps making it harder. It is unprotected 5.7 - 8 to that point where one can get a small TCU into a undercling. The layback itself is comparably easy.
Also, there is a nice new 2 bolt anchor on the summit for a 70 foot rappel. There is no need to downclimb.

Comments: From the cave, it is pretty obvious to head straight up the gully to a stance 20 feet below the notch for a belay. Then head up and right onto the SE face of the middle tower for a short but fun 5.5 pitch to the summit. Also one can get good pro below the bolt, which I did not see until it was 1 foot from my nose!

Comments: Andrew, it seems that you are referring to "Z is last...", at least your description matches that. It is listed on this website.

Comments: The footholds have definitely become very polished over the last few years. My feet slipped at around the first bolt, leaving me hanging by my hands a la Wil E. Coyote (sp?), giving me a nice gash in my index finger that took some direct pressure to stop!

Comments: The top move is 10a - 10b IMHO, but I have had a few months off from climbing. I wonder if a small hold broke off between 2005 and now. Much harder than the other 9s on the cliff.

Comments: We did this today in 3 pitches. Fun outing! The crux (5.7 - 5.8) is crossing a gully about 130 feet up. One can belay just before it.
We got all 3 of us on the summit. The last person had a mostly protected downclimb off the summit block by throwing the rope over a large boulder.
There is a large hex and a large tricam with some slings for a rappel anchor at the top of a 5.7 crack on the west face 15 feet south of the summit block. Look over the edge and you will see them. One can then TR th... more >>


Location: CO : 10 Mile Canyon : Mount Royal (near Frisco) : Aces High (5.10-)

Comments: Just to be more clear, this is the variation that is shown on the picture of the headwall on the Royal Flush description. i.e. it is an alternative to pitches 13 and 14 of Royal Flush. It does NOT start down near the bike path.

That said, it is a great pitch, and definitely the hardest and most sustained, when combined with the rest of Royal Flush. Part of the spice for us came with the wind that kicked up right at the crux, for both of us! I suspect that is a windy spot much of the time, as i... more >>

Comments: Our favorite route of the day on our first visit to Castlewood.
The bolts are good but are below the summit a little bit. One can easily tie off to a tree 10 feet back.

Comments: One can avoid the 11d roof and "Czech out" the upper face by coming in from Funky Gunky after the 2nd bolt. This makes a nice linkup, with some thoughtful face climbing.

Comments: Easier than it looks, though be careful clipping the first bolt.
One can also jog left after the 2nd bolt to hit the upper section of Czech Cashing, thereby avoiding the 11d roof.

Comments: Nice route. one can set an anchor for the belayer with some large cams - #4.5 or so. Crux is between 3rd and 4th bolt. Felt a bit hard for 7+, or maybe it was my first climb on this rock.

Comments: Agree about potential of both climber and belayer tumbling onto the highway. One can place cams (0.5 -0.75) in the horizontal crack before the first bolt, and tie a 15' piece of rope (or the end of your 2nd rope) to them for the belayer, and first piece for the leader if desired, then back clean to avoid rope drag. Ditto re: some loose rock that will go down to the highway.
