Description

This inviting line is on the right end of the Lower Twin Owls. It is just right of Second Thoughts and starts directly behind a dead pine tree. It is an obvious crack system that looks easier than it climbs. It is listed in Rossiter's guide as "Thin Crack" and is described as a "beautiful fingertip crack." There are more lines to play on here (One of Life's Little Problems & its 5.8 variation, Black Lichen Streak, Second Thoughts, Alignment of the Misaligned, and Sunset Arete) on a sunny, windless, late fall or winter day.

Find this line by hiking up the Lower Twin Owls trail to nadir of the Lower Twin Owls buttress (where Tilted Mitten starts). Continue up and right on a trail until you come to a large, right-facing dihedral whose base is described as an alcove in Gillett's guide and on page 212 of Rossiter's guide. It is probably 400 ft up and right from the nadir.

Gaston, lieback, occasionally jam, and then face climb through a shallow slot. The first half is harder than the second half. Belay at a tree. 60 ft. No rappel anchor at this time.

You can also reach this tree by climbing the start to One of Life's Little Problems (to #4 Camalot) and then traverse right (#2 Camalot) to the tree.

Protection

Wires, extra small cams to #0.75 Camalot size.
