The measurement of low pT (> 3 GeV) very forward ( 6) jets with the CASTOR calorimeter of the CMS experiment is presented. The CASTOR (Centauro And STrange Objects Research) calorimeter is covering the pseudorapidity range −6.6 < < −5.2 and is located at -14.37 m from the interaction point. This study is based on a very low pile-up sample of proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy p s = 7 TeV, taken by the CMS experiment during the Commissioning 2010 run period.
