I wonder how many people climb this route? It's fairly obscure and the name is perfect. Wasted and Wounded is how you feel when you climb it.

It's way steep with good holds and some fun reaches. The crux is the roof. Right hand up to a stacked 3 finger crimp, figure out your feet and go for the left better hold and clunk over the roof to huge jugs and a rest.

The last part is superb jug hauling. You'll get pumped real fast on this one and I recommend it to practice your roof skills.


From the main Watchtower wall, walk right, down around to the east-facing side of the wall. There are 2 climbs there; left to right: 12a and 10a.


Bolts to anchors. 7 draws should do it - you can see the bolts clearly.
