Twitch Rock is a small formation just below Highwire Crag that contains two routes; Twitch (5.12d) and an unknown project. Here you'll find a nice vantage point of Highwire Crag and The River Wall. The rock is solid and gently overhanging with some excellent shade provided by a nearby tree.

Getting There 

Park at the large pullout before tunnel two, right across from the New River Formation. Walk along the road, cross the bridge, and head down and right as if you're going to Highlander or Sonic Youth. At about 100 yards, you'll have a trail option to take a direct left, heading up a steep hillside. You should be able to see Twitch, on a gently overhanging rock behind a large tree. From your car, this only takes 5-10 minutes.

The crux of Twitch.

Twitch 5.12d 7c 28 IX E6 6b  CO : Golden : ... : Twitch Rock
Twitch is a fantastic line with hard moves on great rock. The route on the left (middle section of the wall) is Twitch. This is a very thin and powerful route that is in your face early on. An intricate crux sequence leads you through ultra thin fingers to a final deadpoint. Close attention to balance and power will see you through this overhung challenge. Finish on easy rock to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
