DescriptionClimb a steep arete just to the right of Twist One Up. Small holds and hallucination inducing exposure grab onto the climber's brain right away as you make your way up the first half of the climb inch by miserable inch.
And then the fun starts!
Position yourself on a micro-ledge a million feet off the ground and search around for a tiny ass hidden hold that feels wicked insecure once you realize that you are hella far away from your last bolt and the next bolt is even farther away yet.
Spearfish Canyon meets Custer State Park! Many a fine climber have bailed off this thing to try something less hairy and scary.
