A quick sketch of the approach trail and most of the lines on the true Stormwatch, the north-facing wall where I spent so many days on hooks and rappel, so many nights bivvied under the desert stars; freezing, baking in the heat, sitting out monsoon rains in my van... and loving every minute of it.
The hourglass yellow lines on the left end are the Exit Ladders, easy 5.6 or 5.7 trad/mixed lines that put you on top and set up a nice TR or two as well.
The yellow line wandering off left is the 5th class bouldering exit up the dihedral/chimney and through the formations to the top.
The lines on the lower wall are all trad and fairly moderate, if usually filthy after long neglect. You can rap in and clean from anchors on the ledge above.
Illegal Dihedral and the climbs next to it can just be seen at the far right end of the photo.
