Description

A pair of little spires sitting side by side. This area gets much less traffic than the big spires. The west twin has a couple of accessible 5.8 lines, and both have harder routes as well.

Routes, left to right.

West twin (climber's left).
* Unnamed 5.8 (TR only)
* Unnamed 5.8 (sport, 4 bolts to two hangars)
* Harding's Other Chimney 5.7
* Unknown route, 5.10a-ish (mixed sport-trad crack and 2 bolts to anchor with chains on top of the formation)

East twin (climber's right).
* Unnamed 5.11a (sport, 3 bolts to anchor with chains)

Getting There

From the parking lot, take the main trail towards the ever-visible middle spire. Take the first side trail on the left going downhill. Follow it past the twin owls formation, then wind around below them to the right.
