John Ross on Barbie Twins.

  • Located in the Lone Peak Wilderness Area MORE INFO >>>
  • Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Start up a balancy, flaring chimney through three bolts, followed by a somewhat tricky move to exit the chimney onto the face.

    Continue through a few delicate moves to the fourth bolt, then more secure climbing to the anchors.

    A fun, relatively unique limestone sport route.

    Location 

    Located about forty or fifty feet up the gully on the left side (while facing uphill), the chimney is obvious because a yellowish triangle of rock between the gray, limestone sides.

    Protection 

    4 bolts, ring anchors.

    The first time I came up here we didn't know what anything was...so, of course, we got on a couple of "projects". Loose, crappy, and miserable. I was talked into coming back up and giving it another try. Well, this was the first route that I did and I was pleasantly surprised. I think this is a great warm up for the type of rock it is. I wished this route was a little longer though.

    I am not a great climber but have come to be able to do most any 10a but this climb stumped me. If you arent comfortable past the grade I would say be catious. The move onto the face is very committing and the gap between the two bolts is over 10 feet, makes for a questionable fall into the open crack. Got the best of me with the head games!
