BETA PHOTO: Wataneasy Route


Starts to the left of (kind of around the corner from) Watanobe Crack. A cruxy, slightly awkward start gives way to easy climbing along a crack/groove to the horizontals at the top of Watanobe Crack. Belay here (1-3" cams) or continue up to reach the fixed anchor at the top of the formation (same as for Tennis Shoe crack).

Descend by scrambling down on the climbers left or take the easy way off by reversing the approach to Tennis Shoe Crack.


This is the obvious crack to the left / around the corner from Watanobe Crack.

New Vogel Guide: rte. 2099, pg. 485


standard rack

use of fixed anchor atop Tennis Shoe Crack is optional
