Closed to climbing, Feb 1 - Aug 31 MORE INFO >>>


This is the bolted route all the way to the left of the easily accessible part of the south face. Boulder up to first bolt and clip, crux is directly below (and protected by) the first bolt. Move right after the fourth bolt and clip to anchor at top of pitch 1. Pitch two goes straight up from the anchor -- it is vertical face with jug holds for about 15 feet, then it gets real easy to the anchors.


Mixed route. Clip the 4 bolts and protect as needed in between with nuts and small to medium cams. First belay station has colds shuts and chains. Pitch 2 has one bolt - protect as needed with small to medium pro. Chains at top to rap.

In 2008, this area is closed between February 1 and August 31 - for nesting Peregrine Falcons and Mexican Spotted Owls.

This route is actually all the way to the right (not left, as in the route description) of the south face, and goes up on the right side of the outcrop. Beavis and Butthead are the other two climbs on this south face, to the left of Pizz Whiz.

Is this the climb directly to the left of Twin Peaks?

Erin, Twin Peaks is uphill from where the trail meets the west-facing wall (I believe it's the 3rd bolted route from the left, near a 3-trunked tree). Pizz Whiz is located downhill from the trail and around the corner, on the far right of the south-facing wall. It's the only 2-pitch route there.
