Pulling out the roof on Twitch
Great route. This route is many hundred yards right of scarface and about 200 feet right of Wavy Gravy. Starts with a perfect hands roof crack which widens just above the lip to wide hands. Pulling the lip is the crux. After that its a 5.10 thin hands corner to the top.
[The roof is about twenty feet long and 4 feet deep. You can't miss the fist sized crack that is the start of Twitch.]
3-4 sets of camalots from finger size to #3
After the roof

Twitch did some bad things to me. As you can see ...

This is one of my favorite routes at indian creek. Unlike a lot of the other roof routes at the creek, the roof comes right at the beginning and it is perfect hands. After the roof comes a great(fun not huge) dihedral to the anchors. Definately get on this climb if you get the chance. However, you must walk pretty damn far to get to it so be prepared and keep walking, you'll know it when you see it.

I agree Andy. What a line. I have never even checked it out as I walked by to go to routes farther right like Big Guy or Wavy Gravy. Friggin awesome line.

Fantastic route well worth the walk down the right side of the crag. In a place with lots and lots of corners, this one stands out. Great roof pull.

a pretty good tug to get over the roof and get stood up. climbs more like a granite crack.

Very stout roof. Easy to get into the thick of it but hard to get your feet up as the jams start to flare. The plaque said 11++ and I would agree.
