Climb Twitch or Easy Twitch start to the anchor ledge at about 70'. Clip anchor draw and continue into the dihedral corner that is the start of the old aid route "Beaks of Paradise". Place small cams to a crux about halfway with 2 bolts. These bolts were placed next to the 2 bashies that were removed to make this a free climb. Do a desperate dihedral crux to a stance and place small cams through easier ground to a bolted anchor above an old stump.


to the right of "Rites of Spring"


2 bolts + small cams to BD .5. doubles .00 and .0

An incredible splitter dihedral that I can't believe hasn't been free climbed before. Took a little cleaning to bring it to conditions but the result is splitter granite dihedral climb for the sending! Go do it! Sep 7, 2014

Just climbed this today - another good one by the POD. Really quality climbing, incredibly thin and techy dihedral. Sep 14, 2014

Clean & beautiful. At 6'1" it felt easier than the given grade. I'm hoping the gear list doesn't detour people from jumping on it. the pro was all pretty good. Bring a couple larger Hb brass offsets for the small section after the second bolt. Thanks for your work in putting up this route. Jun 13, 2015

Consensus seems to be easier than 12c. So maybe more like 12a or b. May 31, 2016

The corner is short but really cool and a fun diversion from the crimpin nearby. I'd recommend having extra cams in the mid/larger sizes listed above...
Definitely seemed height dependent. Great addition! Sep 13, 2016
