Description

After Life is a great route climbing a various array of pockets, pinches, and water runnels. Goss's guide book says "if there's pockets like this in the afterlife, sign me up". While i wouldn't die in an attempt to gain these attributes, this is a still a fun route, a great warm-up, and should not to be missed.

Location

After Life is the first, direct-most route on the The Watchtower's second and separate cliff. Its start is easily identified by a small alcove that seems to invite an attempt.

Protection

Six bolts to chains.

Not the most amazing climbing I've ever done but some of the coolest limestone pockets I've ever grabbed. Lay your hand flat at the top and watch it stick like velcro... sweet! but ouch. Dec 9, 2010

Again in my opinion, the ratings are wrong and this route is easier than the 9 to the right.

There is also a new route, very nice (and sharp) that shares the first three bolts (long sling on 3rd) and then goes left. Similar grade.

Also there are two new 9ish routes to the right of the other 9. Nov 10, 2009
