after the crux, one more mantle
Awesome route tackling the Upper Watchtower
. First climb the face to the left of Extreme Unction
to a ledge, then up a hand crack with great ledges. Traverse left beneath a roof, breathe deep, and fire the roof with 70 feet of air beneath you! An interesting leftward shuffle above and awkward mantle complete the difficulties.
Standard rack. The crux protects very well and there's a pin or two above it.

fun and classic ferg. weird but good gear in horizontals, fun jugs, and of course mantling through bat guano. Nothing says ferg like some bat guano. After pulling the crux roof and clipping the pin, you encounter another roof that I avoided by "shuffling left" as the poster puts it which I hope was the correct method as I had to mantle into before mentioned excretment. I thought pulling that next roof blind was probably the correct way but was too scared to find out. Still not sure but if the crux was lower I'm happy avoiding a potential whipper on unnecessary off-route terrain.
