Description [Suggest Change]
This sweet corner shoots 200 feet straight up the Watchtower.....the last major crag up the canyon before merging with the peak-to-peak hiway.....it's on the left side of the road and is a very pointy and large (300+ feet) tower right off the road (can't miss it). The left side of the tower has a very large corner/v-slot/dihedral that has 2 bulges with a wide crack. You belay at the top of the corner on a little perch in a notch. Pitch 2 goes up a rotten chimney easily to the summit.
