BETA PHOTO: Twin Cracks climbs the cracks on the left side of ...

Description 

The length of this climb is deceptive from the ground - it's a full 90-100 feet to the top. Start out on easy, lower angled rock climbing the twin cracks that are easy on the hands and provide great protection. The cracks continue to converge until you reach a horizontal break about 3/4 of the way to the top. The last 30 feet has the best climbing with positive holds in the cracks and more great gear. At the top, traverse right to the anchors above the roof.


Location 

Double Trouble is located closer to the eastern end of the wall, and climbs twin cracks immediately left of a column topped with a large overhang.


Protection 

Standard rack to a #3 Camalot. Fixed anchors to the right above Ignorant Pursuit.

A good lead for a fairly novice crack climber (me). I went up with a double/triple rack up to 3" and placed 11 pieces. An experienced climber would not have needed as many. Since you may (like me) be placing gear in both cracks, be sure to use runners or q-draws to keep the rope flowing straight up the rock.
