Featured Route For Watanobe Wall
Wataneasy Route

Wataneasy Route 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Watanobe Wall
Starts to the left of (kind of around the corner from) Watanobe Crack. A cruxy, slightly awkward start gives way to easy climbing along a crack/groove to the horizontals at the top of Watanobe Crack. Belay here (1-3" cams) or continue up to reach the fixed anchor at the top of the formation (same as for Tennis Shoe crack). Descend by scrambling down on the climbers left or take the easy way off by reversing the approach to Tennis Shoe Crack. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
