Description [Suggest Change]

Follow the Twin Falls trail up to the base of the route, impossible to miss as long as you are on the correct trail.

This route is typically climbed in 3 pitches though pitches 1+2 or 2+3 could be combined with a 70m rope.

Pitch 1: (WI4) Climb the initial curtain up the the ledge directly under the main pillar.
Pitch 2: (WI5) Climb up the main pillar to a cave-like feature, belay here.
Pitch 3: (WI4) Continue up to the top, belay at tree.

Either rappel the entire route with two 70m ropes or do a few rappels with v-threads.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Screws to your comfort + belay screws.
