Yeah! There's finally a warm-up for Twitch! It is actually a really fun route with cool moves and a chance to get the blood flowing.

It has fun stemming with a technical stem crux before the third bolt. The anchors can be clipped from the slopers on top of the pillar on the left, it's a reachy clip, but the anchors have long slings on them.


This is just left of Twitch in the New River Area.


5 bolts, 2-bolt anchor w/slings.

Cool line, definitely worth doing. Surprisingly technical, fun stemming, short approach. I'll definitely be back to do it again!

Nice work, guys! This route is a great warm up for the harder stuff around. Really cool stemming, with great stone. Thought clippin' the chains was tough for 5.9, but maybe I'm just a weenie.

This route is fun, but it drips water for awhile after a rain storm. Also, it would be great if the slings were replaced with chains. They have a date of 2005 marked on them, and they will not last forever. I would do it if I had more time on my hands, but I do not, and it really needs to be done to make the anchor safe. I thought the top, below the anchors, was difficult, but this was mostly due to wet rock.
