Description

Tape up because a twisted mind created this one. Heinous hands (a vertical garden of sharp feldspar crystals are inside the crack), a couple of stacks, and strong abs will get you... up or down, whichever occurs first! Belay on gear (approximately 65').

Descend using any anchor set placed around the top of the formation (as seen in Figure 2), perhaps the anchors atop 'The Uncertainty Principle' are easiest.

Location

Twisted is Route #3 on FIGURES 1 and 2.

Protection

Take a half rack supplemented with additional medium cams up to #3 1/2 (Camalots or equivalent).

There are now bolted anxious at the top of both Twisted and Malicious. Not sure why they get the comment 'same description'. Twisted is flared hands with tricky small gear (down to #0.3 Camalot, medium and large stoppers very helpful), while Malicious is a full on offwidth (#5s and #6s). I thought both were really good.
