Description 

The Twin Towers contain some quality TR and bolted routes. There are bolted anchors and opportunities for building naturally protected anchor systems.

Getting There 

Follow primary south trail for 20 minutes to a pass and an obvious fire ring. Before reaching the fire ring follow the trail right to the base of the towers; follow the trail up pass the ring and you can set up TR with fixed bolts or your own anchor systems. Routes move from left tower to right tower.

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.
