Twist & Crawl


Twist & Crawl is a completely ignored though decent climb. Maybe the replacement of several nasty bolts and a new anchor with breathe life into this climb.

Start in a dihedral that ends on a short section of slab. At the slab, negotiate a small bulge and you'll be rewarded with a decent stance on a ramp. Work your way right and into another short dihedral. At this point the route gets steeper and the climbing gets burly. Deadpoint to a flat edge on the arête, pull-up into the steep crack above and layback up to the anchor.

Taming Twist & Crawl takes a full bag of climbing tricks. There are several cruxes, each being quite different in style.


bolts + (optional) small TCU to back up the piton

Wow! What a varied route, and aptly named! Unique moves in the "Twist" section, and some heady slab work on the "Crawl" section!
