Luke on TR at the second bolt.


This is a nice, pumpy line just right of the first pitch of Twin Cracks. Start on Twin Cracks or climb the unprotected and 5.9ish slot to the right. Place a piece or two in a flake and move right to the first bolt. A couple of difficult moves, including some stemming, lead to a layback and a difficult clip of the last bolt. Another 20' or so of easier unprotected or gear-protected climbing leads to the anchors.


4 bolts plus the anchors plus gear. I placed 5 pieces of gear, 2 before the first bolt and 3 after the last bolt, including a nut, 3 finger-sized cams, and a yellow/#2 Camalot. The guidebook says bring only a 0.5 cam, in which case you want to place that before the first bolt.


Start as for Twin Cracks, then move right below the cracks to the first bolt.

good climbing marred by awkward bolt placement. did the FA party get drunk in the parking lot, blindfold a dude, spin him around, and have him shoot 4 paintballs at the wall?

Probably a three star top rope and a two star lead. Like the previous poster said the bolts are in wierd spots. Just tr it after twin cracks. Nice sequence through the crux! Makes you think a bit. Shares anchors with twin cracks.

Bolts are in odd spots but the climbing from just below the first bolt (green Camalot) to the anchor is really fun, cool movement.

4 bolts were replaced on this route in January 2012 thanks to support from the ASCA.
