Access Issue: Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Description

A crimpy, balancy, fun start leads to some sharp-toothed vertical pockets, and followed by a couple of welcome jugs.

Continue up through some slopey, insecure terrain until more positive holds are reached, followed by more slopey goodness.

Surmount a roof-like overhang while feeling just a wee bit desperate, and then finish on positive holds through the last two bolts to the chains.

Location

The right-most bolted line on the south face of The Watchtower.

Protection

6 bolts, chain anchors. Chains aren't visible from below, but are up and right from the last bolt (the one under the bulge/roof).

I'd looked at this unlovely-appearing line a few times and thought, "Ugh. Why would I want to get on that thing?"

However, my partners wanted to climb it and so I, being obviously a creature of the herd, followed suit.

I was pleasantly surprised and quite enjoyed the line, particularly the start. Definitely worth getting on if you're at The Watchtower. Mar 25, 2010
