Description:
Castle Head is a multi pitch abseiling route from the top of Narrow Neck and down the cliffs onto the Ruined Castle ridge. The trip features some spectacular views across the Jamison Valley, Mt Solitary and so on.

Castle Head itself should only take us half a day and I expect to have lunch at Ruined Castle. Thus, I'm planning to do another of the Katoomba abseiling routes in the afternoon. Potentially Boars Head or Malaita Wall, but this will depend on how much time we have left.

For this trip you must have at least intermediate abseiling skills. You must be able and comfortable to get on rope unattended and descend on your own. you must be comfortable to abseil without bottom belay.

You must have all your own abseiling gear or borrow it from the club tonight. You need a minimum of harness, helmet, descender and a leather glove.
