This climb was hard for me. I used a handstack followed by a fist jam to get past the crux. Smaller hands may have more difficulty. Gillett's description made it sound like the crux would be twin finger cracks, but the finger cracks are relatively easy and also are not really cracks, but rather occasional openings in parallel seams.
I used a gray Camalot (new #4, old #3.5) at the wide section followed by a #2 in the back of the crack. Above that there is an optional but bomber new #5/old #4.5 (purple) before entering the finger cracks.

|We found a 2 bolt anchor left of the route just past the big tree. The anchors are 5-6 feet up, so it would be easy to walk right on past them. The anchors are directly below the start of Twin Pillar.|
