Description 

Great route going right up the middle of the right Twin Tower. Fun, well protected and good rock.

Location 

Can be found on the middle portion of the right twin tower. Easily identifiable as it shares the last two bolts & anchor with "Sort of Silly" directly to it's left. You can see all the bolts and anchor from the ground.

Mayr guidebook - route 805

Protection 

6 bolts - shut anchors

You might want to stick clip the first 2 bolts, a fall from there would have you deck with an unpleasant landing.

A fall after the first bolt is going to be a hard, static catch but shouldn't cause a deck. Blowing the second clip is another matter, but you could say that about a lot of routes.

Crux moves through the second and third bolts with some long reaches. Mellows afterwards but remains balancy and technical. Another great route at the Twin Towers.
