Castellan*** E5 6b
42m, 2 pitches. The impressive roof at the right end of the cave is more reasonable than it appears from a distance. Well-protected but strenuous with generally good holds linked by great moves.
1) 6b, 21m. Somehow gain jugs on the lip and follow these into a thrutchy crack leading to a hanging stance. No big cigar?
2) 6b, 21m. The crack above the stance has one very hard move and excellent protection throughout. © ROCKFAX
