Difficult mid-section with barn-door penalty. Other ways to do it but don't want to give away all the fun.

Well protected but the 2nd bolt a bit difficult to clip. That or too many holiday dinners!


Route is obvious from the parking area as it follows the arete of the right Twin Tower. First route you come upon when hiking up the trail to the crag.

I thought this was a great route. It took me a minute to start it after clipping the first bolt because the rock looks like s**t as if it wants to come apart. It turned to be solid and the route had great movement. Definitely a sequence to it, in which I was glad to do on first attempt. There is a very rattly hold at he bottom below the first bolt, but you do not need it.
