Description 

There are two boulders here - the East Twin and West Twin. This route is on the Northwest arete of the East Twin.

Sit down start leads to a huge reach up and left. From there, cut your feet loose and begin an improbable sequence up the arete.

Benningfield's book gives this a V4 rating, so I stuck with that. However, it felt significantly harder than the V5 so maybe a hold broke or I am missing something. Anyway, this problem is burly!

This problems is phat, but it felt a little easier than the V5 to me. I think the area's a little sandbagged.
