Dave on the finger-lock crux of "Twinkie"...

Description 

This route is located to the left of the start of Zinger. The need for some trad gear makes this route interesting. Follow a few bolts and place gear in the thin cracks until you hit an anchor. A fun outing...

Protection 

Draws, nuts and a few small cams...

I jumped on this the other day without knowing about the supplemental gear, made for an exciting lead, still super fun though...

Bring 0.5 Camalot or Orange TCU for gear placement. Bolts are well spaced making for exciting lead. Hard start.

Fantastic solid 10c line not to be missed. Wear shoes that edge really well so you can stand on the tiny bumps and this will greatly assist you in the cruxes. Combination of thin edge/crimping and small finger crack cruxes all in the first 30-40 feet of the climb.

Second and third pitches go at 10- and can be linked together. Adds to the fun.

Love this route. I placed a finger sized cam with a long runner between bolts 3 and 4 but it wasn't really necessary.

Another vote for doing all 3 pitches. Stellar! Fantastic climbing the whole way.
