Description

The Squirming Coil area is easily identifiable as the rather perfect, flat shelf immediately left of the trail (when going uphill) that makes the amazing landing for Squirming Coil. This area includes the routes at the Double Arete area which is pretty much across the trail from Squirming Coil.

Getting There

The Squirming Coil area is easily identifiable as the rather perfect, flat shelf immediately left of the trail (when going uphill) about halfway up the rock stairway. There is a big block with an obvious arete problem (Squirming Coil) that climbs over a small roof. Across the trail and slightly downhill is the Double Arete area and is easily identifiable by the big Double Arete problem that faces the trail. It's about a 5 minute hike... 10 if you get distracted by Dasani on your way up.

Hey Sean, the guidebook I have lists a V4 dyno called Left Lunge which is in the middle of the block, left of Squirming Coil. Beyond that, someone else might know if it's been done statically. Jan 15, 2017
