One column fell over. See condition report below.
Description [Suggest Change]
Unlike the other double crack climbs that work up a face between two pillars, Twin Cracks climbs two cracks that are fairly close together in a corner. Felt harder than the 5.6 rating, and much more difficult than it's neighbor - Double Trouble. Climb up easy, lower angled rock to a small ledge on the left side. Above this point, the climb is sustained with few rests. Jam up the two cracks - stemming options are limited. Great gear throughout.
Location [Suggest Change]
West end of the wall, climbs the double cracks just to the left of Double Trouble.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Large stoppers and cams to 4 inches (an old 4.5 Camalot is useful farther up). all of the way up - a #4.5 Camalot is useful higher up. There are some ratty slings hidden around a boulder at the top, but they were in bad shape with no rap rings. A better option would be to scramble to the top and walk off, or stay roped up and traverse to the anchors above Ignorant Pursuit. Not a good route to top rope.
