    Finally got around to doing this one, it was way more interesting than it appeared from the ground.

    maybe the 90' described goes to the lower anchor. I counted 120' to the top of the crack. All worth doing. There are great moves all the way up this route. Maybe hard for the new trad. leader.

    Get on this thing! It doesn't seem like it gets much love but it is really awesome.

    It is much longer than it looks, almost a full 30m pitch. There are good jams, stemming, and a bit of bear hugging towards the top.

    The only thing detracting from this climb is some loose rock towards the top. Be really careful when you're up there because whatever you knock out has the potential to funnel down between the two pillars and end up right where your belayer is hanging out.

    Full value 5.7!

    Agreed that this route is longer than 90' to the anchors. I found the rock quality and pro in the twin crack to be pretty good but once you reach the blocky finish that near the anchors it gets pretty loose so be careful.
