Description

You want something weird? You want something exposed? You want to plug big gear? You want to use your arms? Take a vacation to tilted world.

Coming out of the tilted world on a hotday, Tim and I really didn't want to go back out into the sun, nor did we feel like rapping down into the Tilted world again.

So while taking some Linville pictures, I came up with the bright idea to try and traverse the top of the Tilt World. It was in the shade so it seem like a good way to burn some more time in the wilderness.

The path is a kind of a choose your adventure line (or pick your poison). Plug gear where you can and hooking body parts into the horizontals for rests. The pump starts ticking as soon as you pull on to it.

At pretty much any point, you can bail and fire up to the top of the cliff, as long as you have the juice. To top outs any of the below climbs (Example: Pinball Wizard is nice)

The hardest part is being up to hang out and all the gear to protect the traverse.

2 schools of thought here.
-Lug the rack and deal with the weight and keep your follower happy.
-Have a heart to heart with the follower and get ready for the exposure fest.
You wont be seeing them for any of the route.

(DO NOT DO THIS ROUTE IF OTHER PEOPLE ARE CLIMBING IN THE TILTED WORLD. There is some choss wrangling in some sections, but most of it is solid. Also maybe take some prussiks to pull back on the route if you whip.)

This thing was probably done by someone else long ago, but I felt it was fun enough to document. I give it the old school NC 5.9+ grade but be prepared for exposure and use of ARMS.

Location

From the pack stashing rocks and hiking trail bushwack a little ways down to the side of the Tilted-World headwall. Here you can climb a small section and get established easy on the face. Choose your path of adventure.

Protection

Takes more Medium and Bigger gear than you think. Used lots of hands #3 and even #4 for fun. Probably would take a #5 somewhere.
