Looking for a decent warmup that's rarely crowded? You could do worse than Twisted although I wouldn't go out of my way to do this route.

To the left of Stain is a slab that leads to a crack/dihedral feature that's the shared start of 3 routes. All three climb the slab and then heading left is the Chronic, stay in middle is Twisted, and going hard right around the arete is the Reacharound.

For Twisted, climb the slab (a little sketchy to the second bolt if you're still half asleep) and then up into the crack for a bolt or two. [Don't go left to early, that's the Chronic.] Step left and climb steep jugs for a depressing short time to anchors.

This is an interesting varied route. It goes from slab, to crack, to overhang. I enjoyed warming up on it!
