Hi, looking for climbs in Sequoia or Kings. The guidebook is impossible to find. Looking more info on the Watchtower, Moro, and any other 5.6-5.9 multipitch climbs in the park... Let me know, or better yet, post the climbs on the routes list so everyone can enjoy. This area definitely needs a boost of climbers. thanks

If you are the same guy who posted on ST, I posted a link to Watchtower beta there.

Isn't the quiet and adventure factor in Sequoia fine the way it is? Does it really need a boost? Wink

I climbed a few summers in the 80s when I was a ranger/naturalist there. Great adventure backcountry climbing. The 5.9 on the watchtower was an outstanding adventure climb in a superb setting. South cracks on Moro is a classic 5.7. Little baldy and chimney rocks offered some close to the road fun options. There use to be a book kept and maintained by the naturalists at lodgepole with some climbing info. I saw a rock n ice guide one time in the 90s.
