Sand Castle, 5.10c
2nd Pitch- 60’- 5.10c/ The roof is a bit chossy. A 5” (even though not called for in the guide book) protects underneath it well. But to protect against a slam back fall requires relying on a few tenuous C3 size cams in manky rock. Once you get the mantle, you can place a decent piece, nothing to write home about though. Then traverse straight out left over the large roof on exposed and unprotected, but in the 5.8 range, ground until the upper corner comes into view. Meander up the corner on some chossy rock, never much above 5.9, until you can finally put in a solid gear station about 30’ up via a hanging belay.
