Start up a short section of chossy rock. Move right under overhang with thin hands and good feet. Pull through roof on gritty sandstone to an off-width pod and then easier climbing to the top and a two bolt anchor with rap rings.

This is not actually the name of the route, but a logical descriptor so I have used it to differentiate between the other route on the formation.


From the Torrey Junction of UT-24 and UT-12 drive east on UT-24 to a turn off on the right for Twin Rocks (which is on the left) at 4.8 miles. Twin Rocks is also located about 4.8 miles west of the Capitol Reef National Park visitor center on UT-24.

Cross the road, climb to the base of the formation and skirt around the the north side. About 5 minutes.


Mostly thin hand gear: #.5 - #2 Camalots with multiple #.75. #4 and #6 Camalots useful as well. Two bolt anchor with Fixe rap hangers at the top.
