After clipping the first bolt most folks move left to mantle onto the ledge. From here, follow tricky climbing out the overlap, then up the face to the final rattly fingers crack. One of the best 5.10's at the Narrows. Anchor may have old slings that need replacing.


On the left side of the Watchtower, this is the uppermost route in the gully.


Bolts and gear from .4 to .75 camalots.
