|West Buttress - South
This fun diverse route starts on patina edges. The crux hits low with in a maze of small patina holds facing different directions. Continue on with tricky pull-down edging leading to a steep jug finish.

When it is 4 stars, you just do it. Don't leave the area without ticking this one off. A word of warning...don't do it in the heat of the day (as I found out the first time I attempted it). This route is best done in the morning.

One of the best routes in the park hands down. 5.9 the 10 rating is not because of the move difficulty just the mental focus needed.

One of my fav routes of all time. Mentally challenging more than physically - thin edges for feet and hands on very positive face with spaced out bolts. A must do in the city/castle area.

I thought the climbing was harder and more run out than it looked from the ground. Because there are a couple of large ledges on the route, there are occasions where it is likely one would hit a big ledge if you were to fall while nearing the next bolt. The bolting is a bit sporty compared to many of the newer routes at Castle Rocks.
