400' traverse around the entire inside of the wall. Once you get it wired it probably is around 5.9, maybe into the 11s if you stay low and munge the sequences. Very sustained.

4 out of 5 stars "the water tower"

Had no idea it was on here. I learned and spent many days training here. Its fun, just be careful the fall from high up on the wall can break ankles, it concrete. So you know they tried to tear it down a couple of years ago but the climbing community kept it alive, so please be nice to the locals.

2 out of 5 stars A sunny day, and a long traverse

This is a great place for a picnic and an afternoon of traversing training. This place is called the water tower because it was a water tower at one time. When it was no longer used as a water tower they busted one side of it out and made it into a tennis court (you'll understand when you get there). If you get up high the fall can be somewhat dangerous because you are landing on concrete... overall it is worth a visit if you are in the area.

I dont know why I'm markign this on my list. I think I'm jsut amazed that it's actually in here! Climbed on it for a whole summer a looong time ago. Met numerous locals who also called it "the water tower"? I dont know why, I dont think theres a water towere anywhere near it except on top of that giant greentree hill or whatever. Either way, it's far.
