This isn't Twix according to Marty's guidebook. It starts a few feet further around to climber's right in an obvious finger crack. A couple of bouldery moves on face holds get you to the first stance and good gear placement. The rest of the climbing is fairly uninspiring. You need a 4 or 5 camalot for a decent gear anchor up top.

Thanks for that alert / warning about not getting on an unintended route.
Photos and Lines drawn on photos can be tricky, so I might have misunderstood the guidebook photo (or my own photo).

Or maybe I've misunderstood the whole Twix route in my route Description text page? Since "JC w KC redux" seems to be saying that Twix starts on a finger crack, while what I climbed started up a wider crack.
. ? (So if "Twix" is the finger crack, then what's the name of the wider-crack line I climbed?)

Unfortunately I'm away from both my guidebook and the actual Bammies rock for a while, so I cannot try to figure out what's wrong, so ...
Glad for your hint.
