DescriptionFool Me Twice is an extension to Deceiver that links up to The Brown Palace. I thought it was a very enjoyable pitch.
1. Climb Deceiver (5.10-ish) to its rappel anchors. An easier approach utilizes the first half of the first pitch of The Brown Palace, at which point Deceiver is followed (5.7).
2. Move right from the belay to a shallow, left-facing corner (3 bolts) and then use RPs (and/or an optional cam out right) to protect an easier stretch to a bulging headwall. Pull through the crux bulge protected by small cams and wires (5.11c), and then angle up right along a small, angling corner with tricky climbing (5.11, 4 more bolts -- the last two bolts are shared with The Brown Palace).
Rappel twice from here, or continue to the top of the wall via The Brown Palace.
