|Castle Rock - South Face
One pitch fun slab route. Pretty good holds up until about three bolts from the top, then slab scoops to the anchor.
Start is located pretty much between Big Time and High Road just left of a big tree.

Can be started left or right of the big tree. You could start at the bottom of the Low Road variation to the High Road, then traverse in to the left (which would be right of the tree). Have done it both ways, and, right hand start might be easier?

I thought the crux would be at the bottom where it is steep, but there are many edges for your hands and feet.
As stated before, the crux is the last 30 feet (2 or 3 bolts) where it's smearing footholds and not much for the hands. Time to trust your feet!
