Description Suggest change

Set directly up and off of the The Watchtower's main floor are two distinct tiers. The first has an older, more traditional feel with routes such as the ground up led Total Ramon and the fully traditional gear route Steel Reserve.

The second tier has a more well-protected, new school touch with the most recently bolted Conflict (2004) and the ever-growing, ever-popular Uncensored Society.

Primarily a sport crag, The Watchtower Tiers offers a little bit of everything. Littered with cracks, the options can be limitless--clip em' or skip em'. Warm-up on Imperial, or Uncensored Society, then test your skills on the walls more challenging test pieces.

Getting There Suggest change

Built above the The Watchtower's primary trail and set just east of Total X is an obvious, well-constructed tier. The first route you'll encounter here is Imperial.
