  • Description 

    This route is a bit contrived; it's hard not to use the obvious Twin Oaks crack to your left.

    P1 5.9+ Climb up the face below the overhang, clear it (crux) and continue up face to a bigledge (50 ft.). There is a rappel station to the left, which falls over Hyjek's Horror.

    P2 5.5 Climb the left-facing corner above P1 to large ledge and step left to a small, short left facing corner (same as for Triple Bulges) Climb a bit left of the corner, pretty much straight up (staying left of Triple Bulges) to a bulge below a flaky, right-facing corner. Climb the bulge (crux) and up to a corner to GT ledge and belay tree/rap station (140ft).


    Protection 

    Standard Gunks rack


    Location 

    Find the big crack of Twin Oaks, just past the Fingerlocks crack. Start immediately right of Twin Oaks.
