One of the better offerings at Twin Crags. A little heads up on lead, as the crux is ~25 feet off the ground, with only a couple small pieces in. Sustained 5.10 climbing the whole way.


Midway between the cave and the right end of the crag; just right of a 4 bolt 5.12.


Gear to 2", rap rings at anchors. I protected the crux with a purple TCU and a #4 BD stopper.

A non-obvious (to me) 0.5 X4 placement was reassuring at the crux. I don't think an equivalent C4 would fit. The only other gear I could find is very small (#00 C3, #1 wallnut)

Next time I would bring my micro nuts. Fun route.
