Seven Castles Area, Under A Winter Sky. On January 5 I soloed a four-pitch route in the Seven Castles area north of Basalt. Under A Winter Sky (III 5.9X) climbs the main chimney system on the left side of the wall. It then breaks left to gain the prominent stepped corner system. It continues up the corner system for two more interesting pitches. I descended by rappelling the route. The Seven Castles area consists of many 180-meter walls beckoning to be climbed.
