About The Watchtower:

This buttress is the widest in the canyon and the farthest north from the parking area, but the elevation gain to get the base of the climbs isn't much. The first tier is very high quality and is split by a very wide chimney dubbed the elevator shaft. The second tier above is said to contain routes, and does, but are supposed to be low quality and loose, enough to scare me away from them...
