Description

The crux is at the top of the two parallel cracks under a roof to traverse right (crux), then pull onto a face onto a ledge to bolted anchor P1, belay. Then up to the top of the Lower Grotto Wall belay P2.

You can rap from the anchors with a single 60m rope.

Location

This is easy to find, the two "twin cracks" left of Cryogenics.

Protection

Trad, well-protected, bring some long runners though.

Great route. High quality. This route had it all: jams, stemming, jugs, and a spicy traverse. Great to new leader, good gear the whole way. Sep 13, 2009

Yes, I remember thinking that traverse was a little spicy for 5.8. Very fun. Feb 13, 2011

Great climb. Traverse is spicy but not technically difficult. Short jug haul after makes any rope drag manageable. I thought this route was easier than Zanzibar Dihedral (Weller Slab, classic 5.8). Aug 7, 2017

Everything from the twin cracks up is solid gold. I had a smile on my face the whole way. Jul 22, 2018
