Description

Clean and simple this well protected variation start to Mothers Day keeps your feet clean and the leaves out of your hair. Steep and littered with holds, the short North Crack is a nice way to bypass the first pitch of Mothers Day. Climb the jagged, blocky crack on the right side of the face. Top out on the large knob and traverse the rim up and left to a belay ledge. This short line has no fixed anchors. Watch out for loose rocks.

Location

On the right side, north face of the first tier of The Watchtower. Directly up and around the left corner from Mothers Day. This is just right of the Don't Look Down variation.

Protection

A couple of slings, and a rack of cams to 3 inches.
