Twin Oaks

Description 

The first pitch is nice and a good first lead. The second pitch wanders around the face above, and I have never been able to tell exactly where it goes. I prefer P2 of Triple Bulges.

P1 - Climb up the nice face for 10-15 feet (crux) past a couple horizontals to the obvious crack. Climb the crack and/or face to the left for a few feet, then finish up the face either to the left or right of the crack. Rappel from a tree ~15' left.

P2 - William's describes it, but I have never been able to follow it. I won't plagiarize Williams' description and will try to add this if I ever figure it out.


Location 

Past Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst, at the right edge of the Guide's Wall; Twin Oaks is the next crack right of the striking Finger Locks or Cedar Box crack.


Protection 

Standard Gunks rack.

Agree that this is a difficult route to figure out the line...it seems to kinda wander a bit up the easy ledges. However, it can be easy to get off route on harder stuff.

First pitch is great, I could do that for another 150'. Totally "G".
