Description

This is a crack to the right of Leave it to Beaver that starts in a shallow, right-facing dihedral that turns into a narrow, flared chimney about halfway up or so.

Protection

TR, or a trad rack including small cams.

Per Glen Luckjiff: there are two bolts at the lip.

Double Helix is a short, sweet, and very protectable climb. Feb 17, 2007
Just giving this little gem of a climb some more love. It's a tremendously enjoyable 5.9, with varied and interesting moves from start to finish. Protection couldn't be better. This would make a superb first 5.9 lead. Sep 20, 2013

I would rate this harder than a 5.9. SUPER fun start, it gets difficult near the top. Feb 27, 2018
