The Clock Tower is the second most popular crag at the Sport Park, after Surprising Crag. It gets morning shade, making it a good choice for a hot day. It has a number of fun routes, mostly in the 5.10 to 5.11 range, although there are a few 5.9s.
It's divided into two areas: the left side of the crag is the Chicken Wall. It has a number of fun 5.10 routes. The right side of the crag is the Upper Wall. It has some harder routes in the 5.11 and 5.12 range.
Take a right when you get to the aqueduct trail; shortly after take a trail up left to the crag. You'll come up to the crag at the Chicken Wall, near the route Daddy Blocker.
