A bat has been calling one of the good holds home. Don't wake him up...
Some of the best moves on the Watchtower - coupled with some of the most uninspiring hardware(surprise surprise).

|I agree with Boissal. Great moves, but the bolts and hangers look ancient and thin. Great climb though. Probably my favorite in Ferguson.|

It's all about dialing in the sequence! I gave her a go for about a hour on the wall going bolt to bolt with plenty of falls. After losing sleep and dreaming of the sequence I came back after 2 days and redpointed it!
Powerful moves and commitment! The falls are great despite the scary looking ledge that is actually out of your fall zone. Going from bolt 2 to 3 you'll want to make sure your belayer is tight to the wall and you are aware of the rope.
