Walt a bit past halfway on Red Cloud.

Private Land Owned by Teck Cominco Mining Co MORE INFO >>>


An excellent, long route through interesting (and sharp!) rock. A large dish midway up, just to the right of the line allows for a no-hands rest (and for clowning around).

At the midpoint rap anchors the rock gets a bit steeper, but good holds abound and in only one or two locations do you wish for slightly better feet.


The left variation of the lines that start up the tall main face of The Watch Tower proper. There is a rectangular, slotted pocket below the first bolt, which can be gripped like a ladder rung. After the fourth bolt, head left (to the left of the bathtub dish in which grass grows).


Fourteen bolts (the guide says seventeen — I'm pretty sure I would have noticed an additional three bolts but I didn't see 'em). Bolted anchors.
