Description 

The Clock Tower is the second most popular crag at the Sport Park, after Surprising Crag. It gets morning shade, making it a good choice for a hot day. It has a number of fun routes, mostly in the 5.10 to 5.11 range, although there are a few 5.9s.

It's divided into two areas: the left side of the crag is the Chicken Wall. It has a number of fun 5.10 routes. The right side of the crag is the Upper Wall. It has some harder routes in the 5.11 and 5.12 range.

Getting There 

Take a right when you get to the aqueduct trail; shortly after take a trail up left to the crag. You'll come up to the crag at the Chicken Wall, near the route Daddy Blocker.

If you climb 5.12 or if you are looking to grab your first one, try this route out.
