A short cliff band that would appear to have at least a couple of good lines, although looks can be decieving as I found out. I found a few lines that are decent but short, I only climbed one though. The others looked a bit hard for how tired I was from just getting there or just too short to even motivate me.
Lots of bushwhacking the formation is left of A-hole rock across the gully. Just arriving there seemed the crux of my day. We approached on the south side of a-hole (as for Cardiac Crack) up over the saddle behind A-hole. Then down into the gully and back up the other side in a boulder field like a glacial crevasse flow. Exhausting. I'm sure there is a better way. Perhaps if you follow the directions for smoke a fatty in the obscure rocks section of b-creek, then head up on the left side of the gully that runs beneath a-hole rock. stay out of the gully if you can help it as it will be hell. it's like your navigating a crevasse if you get in it as there are alot of holes (deep enough to seriously injure a climber with a pack, 20 ft roughly)you could fall into if you make a bad jump or move. not to mention it is just physically hard work. we came down it and it was pretty wild.

Also know by some as Secret Climb One, this fine line splits the back (south) side of Twisted Sister. The crux comes part way up just past the lone bolt, but a steep thin hands crack at the top adds some challenge too. This route gets great winter sun. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
