5 out of 5 stars Watanobe Wall

One of my favorite crack climbs in Jtree. Not as tall as some of the other stellar 5.10a's, Comic Book or Spiderman for example, but a sunny spot sheltered from the wind, and fun moves from bottom to top. The crux is making a bit of a lunge through the small roof. Pure crack, no bolts, rap off backside and scramble down left. (regarding below, there is no specific beta to go right, just follow the crack, it is a trad climb)
