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.

Difficult route that felt harder than the 5.10 rating. Start under the left side of the blank face about 1/2 way up the tower. Climb easy rock to the base of the steep face. There are three bolts on the face, with top anchors (the same as for Staircase) that are set well back from the top. The face is difficult, with insecure, reachy holds.
