The Twilight Kid is an excellent new sport climb on Treasure Wall. It has great slab climbing just right of Join the Party.

Boulder up to a high first bolt. Clip the first bolt then head left following bolts up to a tree. Go right at the tree (hard move) and then up cool moves into a short corner. Make a cool move out the corner and then up to the anchor. Lower back down from the hooks.


Take the Treasure Wall approach, and hike right up the hill about 50' to the highest ledge, by a big pine tree. Start on the face by this tree.

Nine clips will get you to a two-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.

Did the 2nd ascent, 5 minutes after Bob did the 1st. Fun moves on the upper slab. This one should clean up well.

Great moves between the small tree and the anchor.

This is a wonderful climb. If you like balancy, delicate moves, definitely check it out.

This is the easiest 5.10 in the universe.

This certainly is not 5.11, maybe 10d but no harder.

Great climb with solid rock, good features, and an interesting crux. Potential for a decent fall if you don't clip before trying the crux. I agree that this probably goes at the mid-10 range rather than 11-, great climb though.
