Description 

Cradle to Grave starts with 3 excellent chimney/offwidth pitches on great rock. One squeeze section was so narrow I had to take my harness off to get through. It's also possible to avoid this section by climbing the offwidth out side of the chimney. 3 more pitches, including a 35' section of clean aid, lead to an excellent, exposed crack, leading to the summit.


Location 

See photo topo under "Watchman"


Protection 

2-3 sets cams with a few big sizes including the largest camalot. 1 set R.P.'s
