Description

Twitch Rock is a small formation just below Highwire Crag that contains two routes; Twitch (5.12d) and an unknown project. Here you'll find a nice vantage point of Highwire Crag and The River Wall. The rock is solid and gently overhanging with some excellent shade provided by a nearby tree.

Getting There

Park at the large pullout before tunnel two, right across from the New River Formation. Walk along the road, cross the bridge, and head down and right as if you're going to Highlander or Sonic Youth. At about 100 yards, you'll have a trail option to take a direct left, heading up a steep hillside. You should be able to see Twitch, on a gently overhanging rock behind a large tree. From your car, this only takes 5-10 minutes.

The route right of the Prowler goes at 12b/c, and I believe Piz has the FA. Jul 21, 2014

Not sure about that one, I thought it was a 5.12 that's been done before but probably not in a long long time. Then again the description on this page says it's a project, so who knows.... Jul 9, 2014

Luke Childers bolted the link up from Twitch to Prowler, it's an open project. Have fun! Jul 7, 2014
Has anyone done the route that starts on Twitch then heads right around the 3rd bolt towards the Prowler anchor? Jun 30, 2014
