Double Heelix

Description 

Some people don’t like lip traverse boulder problems. Those people have not climbed Double Heelix. Start on the far right on the obvious spike. Throw a heel up, and start traversing left, past a slopey section, an awkward section, and to the left corner. Top out. Now that’s what a lip traverse is supposed to be.

Location 

Just uphill from Widowmaker and Paint Chips, this is the right-to-left traverse.

This route is beautiful. A wide variety of holds and techniques will be used to send this great line. A must climb for the area.
