One of the better routes in the area. Begin up a steep, somewhat slabbish face with a couple of good finger pockets. The crux is the between the first and second bolt. There is a long run out between the second and third bolts, but the climbing is easy. Continue up the steepening face past two more bolts to the chain anchors. The final moves to the anchors are the best part of the route.
Sandbag is the one route on the Right Tower, and follows the bolt line on the right side of the tower.
Five bolts to a chain anchor below the tower's summit.

Very thoughtfully bolted. The pro is exactly where you want it. This was my first 5.9 sport lead, and I never felt like I was in a position for a high consequence fall. Good stuff! Also although there is still snow on the ground the area around Twin Towers is in great shape for climbing, with clean rock.

Nice, clean rock. Guidebook says there are 6 bolts, but I only found the 5 that this site lists. The well-protected nature of the climb makes it an excellent first sport lead. Two bolt anchors at top make it great for TR practice. The base of the climb is more level and spacious than that below the Left Tower.
