Featured Route For Watanobe Wall
Come N Do Me

Come-n-Do-Me 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Watanobe Wall
To find this route first spot a rather obvious roof, perhaps 6 meters off of the deck, then walk/squirm into a bit of a boulder-grotto at the base. Climb up the face to reach a bolt (5.10a), into the left side of the huge roof (bolt, cam, 10b), then pulls right (crux?) into a traverse of a semi-horizontal crack to it's right end (easier here, with gear if desired), then goes back up the wall again on face moves past a bolt (5.8). At the top the climbing is runout just a shave at the 5.7/8 level....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
