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.
