my crux


An outstanding route with multiple cruxes. The name Gemini possibly comes from the route's two characters- thin razor edges to big jugs and vice versa.


The route climbs the beautiful face between Donini's Crack and Coffee and Cornflakes.


Bolted. Chain anchors at the top.

One of the most memorable midroute rests you're likely to find. Safe, fun route. Good confidence builder for the grade.

I believe the name Gemini comes from a roller coaster, as the whole wall is named the roller coaster wall. Collosus is a coaster at Lagoon in Ogden, Utah. I'm pretty sure Tarantula is another roller coaster, so I guessed that Gemini is one too.

gemini is an old wood and steel rollercoaster at cedar point in ohio. its said to be the most ridden coaster ever, which seems funny cause the bingham guide calls this the most tried .12a in the city.
