Description 

The Twin Towers contain some quality TR and bolted routes. There are bolted anchors and opportunities for building naturally protected anchor systems.

Before reaching the fire ring follow the trail right to the base of the towers; follow the trail up pass the ring and you can set up TR with fixed bolts or your own anchor systems.
