Description 

Go right from where the approach trail hits the wall for a few hundred feet. This route is just left of the 5.13 corner called Death of a Cowboy (plaque). The letters TW are painted at the route's base. A long strenuous handcrack which takes some thought to negociate the crux which pulls past/over a huge chockstone. Don't get tunnel vision at this intimidating section. The majority of the route is great hands. Enjoy it!

Protection 

As many hand sized pieces as you can borrow. The bottom thin-hands flack takes #2 Friends well. Bring 4 or 5 #2 Friends. Bring a couple smaller pieces but nothing micro. A #4 Friend will also be helpful. Bring slings and draws to reduce rope drag.

A fun route that throws a lot at you. About 150 feet. Bring two ropes to get off.
