I was using very rough numbers.

I never really thought about the fact that people may find the "slab" climbing of Blue to be difficult, but thinking about, it makes sense. For me it was purely steepness. Neither are really that hard if you are decently fit, but I will say, if you're on the fence, Castle Rock has what I consider a really good view, albeit limited in range, and it's an easy climb physically. Also nothing boring about it with the castle cliff. We took my niece up when she was around 5 or so, and the steep part skirting the cliffs was a bit hard for her, but doable with help. Just something to think about with little kids. I climbed Blue the first time when I was a little kid and it was no issue. In fact I think I ran most of the way up... my Dad was none to excited about that.
