The crux kicks in at the top in the offwidth, before you can get your knee in- sound familiar?
Great climb, and pretty good OW training. On top-rope the second can easily lie-back, making the crux much much easier. Bring the big gear and make this route part of your Dylan wall adventure.


This is the long route on the left side of the Watchtower. The watchtower is the obvious large (approx. 200ft) leaning pillar toward the middle to left side of the Dylan wall. A 70 meter rope barely gets the job done as long as you belay off the small pillar at the base of the route. Consider bringing a knife and webbing to clean up the anchor. A second pitch also continues on, but I have no information to offer.


At least 3 of each- 1 camalot, 2 camalot, 3 camalot, 4 camalot, 4.5 camalot, and 2 #5 camalots.
