A quick sketch of the approach trail and most of the lines on the true Stormwatch, the north-facing wall where I spent so many days on hooks and rappel, so many nights bivvied under the desert stars; freezing, baking in the heat, sitting out monsoon rains in my van... and loving every minute of it.   <br /> <br />The hourglass yellow lines on the left end are the Exit Ladders, easy 5.6 or 5.7 trad/mixed lines that put you on top and set up a nice TR or two as well. <br /> <br />The yellow line wandering off left is the 5th class bouldering exit up the dihedral/chimney and through the formations to the top. <br /> <br />The lines on the lower wall are all trad and fairly moderate, if usually filthy after long neglect.  You can rap in and clean from anchors on the ledge above. <br /> <br />Illegal Dihedral and the climbs next to it can just be seen at the far right end of the photo.  The route Stormwatch is tucked out of sight between.
