Phil Watts above the crux on Newton County Metalit...


The crux of this climb is unmistakable, and very specialized. Campus the first few moves to a large jug, then high step, crimp, and stand up into a shallow dihedral. Follow good holds and much easier climbing to the arete and the top. The bottom moves are much harder than the rest of the route, and can be made easier by using cheater stones. This route will feel very different in difficulty to many different people.


On the far right hand side of the cliff. This route is on the right hand side of a bouldering cave, and starts with your hands above the cave. Look for a shallow dihedral above some very chalked holds.


Six bolts and a two bolt anchor.

Diverse movements make this route fun. Look for the ticked rail at the bottom of the dihedral.

Ok route - the bottom is much easier if you are taller/have a large ape index. After the opening moves/getting established on the wall the difficulty eases tremendously.
