Overview

The Ghostly adventure starts around the pillar to the right of Hue and Cry. This is the farthest south route done on The Watchman so far. A massive detached flake named The Ghost is visible from the ground 300 feet up the route. On the first ascent every pitch on this route was either lead free or was top roped free by the second. We finally found the time for an all-free attempt in 2008 and were surprised at the lack of difficulty.

Rack: 3 ea .4-1, 2 ea 1.25-4, 1 ea 4.5-6, nuts, 2 60m ropes.

Descent: rappel the route.
