Twofers is a neat roof problem. Start on the left side of the gully, below the obvious roof about 35 feet up. Scramble up to the left corner of the roof, layback, reach, and move out through the left corner. Continue up directly above the roof.


Look for the two nice trees, and a 1' wide slot drops the rope perfectly.

When reaching the roof, place that piece at the lip and then reach up and right over the roof to find the nice jug waiting for you a little hard to spot from the ground and on the lead, but once you find it, the climbing eases for sure. A nice line. (What's with the piton about 2 feet from the top? Weird spot as there are plenty of spots there for good gear? Huh. Nov 14, 2001
What a great challenge for the Gym climber gone outside. I took a few gym climbers up today and found ourselves (among many others) with a great end of the day climb. The roof could be rated greater than an 8 if you were to heel hook to the right, however, I found it much more enjoyable to navigate the corner with a smooth crawl up the opposing face while grasping the great hold just above the roof. The slab directly above the roof is really thin for slab... just the way we like it. Jeff Burley Apr 6, 2002
I just did this yesterday. Didn't feel quite like 5.8 but still super fun. However, I wouldn't want to lead this, as I didn't notice any pro placements after you turn the roof. Jun 8, 2005

Led this enjoyable route for first time on beautiful fall day, yesterday. This climb did not feel like a 5.8 to me - got stung by a bee as soon as pulled over the roof, so maybe this adds a half grade of difficulty! Roof is a fun little puzzle & easily protectable. There are two nut placements in the crack directly above the roof and at least one hex left and above if you look around for it. Nov 22, 2006

Plenty of pro after you turn the roof, don't hesitate to lead this one. Wasn't even runout at all. Apr 9, 2008

Came to this route after 2 or 3 years of absence... can't believe that yellow (#2 BD?) cam is still stuck under the roof. I would have thought some super industrious college student would have gotten that out by now. Jun 14, 2012

Just climbed it today & there was no bird nest that I could see. Super fun. Jun 20, 2012

Fun route! Had to take my helmet off in order to get my head past the roof. Jan 30, 2013

Mostly straightforward. At the roof, both of us did things a little differently. Instead of reaching left and climbing around, reach straight through the crack in the roof, and feel for the rail on the left hand side. Commit to it, and bring your right hand around for a rail on the right hand side. Jul 9, 2013

For the roof move, stemming seems to be key for us short climbers. That wonderful jug to the left is a bit of a reach. Jun 2, 2014

Super fun roof! I had my helmet bumping the roof, and it took me a minute to find the great handholds above. Once I found the hold, it was pretty easy to turn the roof but still really fun.
One of the more fun climbs I've done at Happy hour. Solid 5.8. Sep 7, 2014

After pulling the roof, there's definitely enough options for two or more gear placements (if you didn't already use the size, c3s work well). Then it's either a 10-15 ft runout with 5.6 holds or you can take the easier crack to the left, which provides more security.

Expect lots of rope drag caused by the roof if you try a toprope, even with a well extended anchor up top. Even lowering and cleaning was rough on the rope.

There's a perfect horizontal slot at waist level below the roof that gives the best pre-roof placement, either a purple or green c4 if I remember correctly. May 22, 2015
