Description

A great route with delicate climbing and fun moves. Start on the shelf on the left side of the Latest Rage buttress and climb an aesthetic face that gets a little harder the higher you go. The middle is tough, but the ending is no walk.

Location

The Dihedrals.

Thin crux. Save it for a cold day. Sep 22, 2008
This is allegedly the first sport climb. Does anyone know if this is true? Feb 2, 2013

Page 30 & 31 of Rock Climbing Smith Rock State Park has the information you seek on Watts Totts. Better yet, read the whole history chapter, great stuff.

People love to hate on this route, (I used to be one) but it's mostly because they're bad at tech vert. It's pretty fun if you like that style. Mar 18, 2017

This route gets its grade from one move. The crux is short and roughly in the exact middle of the route. No other part of the route exceeds 5.11b/c in my opinion. Fantastic line nonetheless, but don't get tricked thinking it's a walk in the park for the grade before reaching the crux. Jul 28, 2017
