Below the crux on Twisted Sister.


A nice route that is easy to overlook. Although the pro looks dubious from the ground, it's not bad.

Work up the face between Baby and Easy Overhang. Often used to avoid the wide crack on Baby - it is tempting to move left into the Baby crack after about 40'.

The second pitch isn't memorable (as in, I can't remember anything!) and goes left of Baby. You can also climb P2 of Easy Overhang or even P2 of Son of Easy O.

Rappel from bolts at Easy Overhang, or wander back to the Uberfall Descent.


Immediately right of Baby.


Standard gunks rack - mostly small stuff.

Maybe it's me, but, I can't find the "G" gear on this climb.

UPDATE: I think it is "G" rated, just bring some little gear.

I put a smallish tcu in the slot to protect the crux, but looking at it to scootch it in properly was quite involved. Agree that 'pg' is closer to the truth.

Did the this as an alternative to start of Baby. My first attempt at the grade, and loved it! Cool moves up through the crux.

Definitely G. I stitched it up with two nuts in the crack and an alien in the slot above it.
