  • Description 

    More steep climbing in the Tilted World. Access this route similar to the other routes in this area. There are many ways to get to the Tilted World (see below).

    P1: Climb one of many routes. Most guidebooks will start you on Seretripitous or Built to Tilt's first pitch.

    P2: Start on pitch 2 of Built to Tilt. Go left and up on the arch to a stance. You will be belaying down and left of where Built to Tilt goes. You can also link pitch 1 and 2 together.

    P3: Instead of climbing the dihedral on Built to Tilt, climb out left to a left facing corner. Climb this to another small ledge to the overhanging roof to the top.


    The start of this route is the same as Built to Tilt and Full Tilt Boogie. You can access this route via the many routes below such as Energizer, Serentripitous, or Turn and Burn. You can also rap in from the top of the cliff which is generally the most straight forward method if you are familiar with the area. You can rap in on a single rope to the vegetaed area below the routes. You can easily recon this from across the descent gully on the large picnic rock/ledge area above Dopey Duck.


    Typical Shortoff rack.
