TT's Terror starts in a finger crack with a tree growing out of it just right of Zit Slab's start. Climb the finger crack, trying not to step on the tree, to a nice crack in the upper headwall. Climb past awkward and difficult moves (possibly 5.9) through a pod to a nice hand crack.

Descent - Rap from anchors atop the Right Deception Crack or scramble down 4th class terrain right of PMC.


1 x 0 TCU (Purple Metolius) This is the only gear that I could find to protect the crux.
1 set TCU's
.5 - 3 Camalots
Small, Medium, and Large Stoppers

That pod is very awkward. 5.7+++. :) As of 11/6/07 there is a fixed #0 TCU to protect the crux moves through the pod. After that, it's cruiser jugs and hand crack to the top! Fun route.

Climbed this route again a few days ago. It really is high quality. Fixed TCU remains in place at the crux. Only one or two insecure moves through the pod leads to bomber jams and holds. Fun climbing on great rock.

The fixed TCU was there 2 weeks ago but it's gone now, unfortunately. The crux is awkward, but the finger crack off the ground and the climbing above the pod are high quality. Pretty dirty at the moment.

"TT's Terror starts in a finger crack with a tree growing out of it just left of Zit Slab's start."

My guidebook shows this route to the right of Zit Slab, not left.

Difficult crux for sure and the description is right that this could be a 5.9 move. Doesn't matter really, but expect to work hard for being rated 5.7+.
