Description 

The Squirming Coil area is easily identifiable as the rather perfect, flat shelf immediately left of the trail (when going uphill) that makes the amazing landing for Squirming Coil. This area includes the routes at the Double Arete area which is pretty much across the trail from Squirming Coil.

Getting There 

The Squirming Coil area is easily identifiable as the rather perfect, flat shelf immediately left of the trail (when going uphill) about halfway up the rock stairway. There is a big block with an obvious arete problem (Squirming Coil) that climbs over a small roof. Across the trail and slightly downhill is the Double Arete area and is easily identifiable by the big Double Arete problem that faces the trail. It's about a 5 minute hike... 10 if you get distracted by Dasani on your way up.

Start out matched on the low sloping rail. Figure out how to get your ass off the ground, and reach up high with your right for the crimp/pinch.

From here, you keep moving straight out the prow of the arete, using a large rail on the north face of the boulder. Move the feet up, and figure out how to hit the lip with your left. After that it's pretty much over; you move left along the lip until you r...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
