Description 

Follow the Twin Falls trail up to the base of the route, impossible to miss as long as you are on the correct trail.



This route is typically climbed in 3 pitches though pitches 1+2 or 2+3 could be combined with a 70m rope.

Pitch 1: (WI4) Climb the initial curtain up the the ledge directly under the main pillar.
Pitch 2: (WI5) Climb up the main pillar to a cave-like feature, belay here.
Pitch 3: (WI4) Continue up to the top, belay at tree.

Either rappel the entire route with two 70m ropes or do a few rappels with v-threads.

Screws to your comfort + belay screws.
