Description

A fun sport route with neat stemming.

Take the Treasure Wall approach and go about 30' up the hill, just right of a big pine tree next to the wall.

Climb the steep face, with crux stemming past the 3rd bolt. Continue up with more cool stemming moves. Traverse right to a little pine, then go straight up to the anchor on a good ledge.

The anchor is shared with Bobby's Back; you can TR that route after climbing this one.

Descent: Lower 60' back to the start.

We did the first ascent around 8:30 pm with just enough light to see; hence the name "Twilight Time".

Location

Take the Treasure Wall approach. Go right and uphill about 30' to the start of the route, just right of a big pine tree next to the wall.

Pleasant line. I believe (?) that in addition to the anchor, the last bolt is also shared with Bobby's Back. At least, I clipped it. Nice hooks for anchors! Sep 19, 2007

I lead it on gear, cleaning the little cracks up as I went. It goes 5.9+ on gear, no real runouts if you have some brass or steel. If I'd had ball nuts I would have sewn it up tight.
A majority of the route goes easily without bolts, some I had to tinker with, but it was all protected. Sep 22, 2007

Nice line and you can also then top rope the route to the right if you wish. Sep 8, 2008

This climb is probably easier clipping bolts than placing gear, but it ain't harder than 5.9 as a sport route. Aug 29, 2010

I wouldn't come to the crag for this one, but we had a lot of fun on it when we were there. The stemming moves above the third bolt are great! I don't think I could call this 10a, though there are much easier 9s in the canyon. Jul 12, 2014

FYI: 3rd bolt is apparently a little loose. My partner tried to hand tighten it...and then whipped on it...it stayed put.

Climbing itself is a ton of fun. Not very hard if you climb creatively. Apr 14, 2015
