Class is in! Time Zone Wall, Watson Lake.

Partially Closed.


Easy access, good rock and an abundance of routes serve to make this Watson Lakes most popular climbing destination. Several long ridges of rock radiate westward from the lake's shore and on most of these you'll find routes to climb. There is a mix of sun and shade. Summer/early fall can be hot, but in the few hours before sundown it can be suprisingly nice. Late fall, winter to spring is often excellent.

Getting There 

Hike north from the north boat ramp using one of the trails mentioned in the Watson Lake overview.
