Once you reach the main wall, you keep walking right. The only route with drilled bolts. You really can't miss it.


Five bolts (one of the few non-cemented routes) with anchors at top.

I think this is the same route as `We Refuse to Grow Old and/or Up`

My book has this at a 5.8, but I guess there are variations to it depending if you go left or right.

The route you are referring to seems to be "Gecko Twins." Fun little climb. I top roped it by traversing from the bolts from "You Must Have Wings." Pretty secure holds and you can work some good variations by sticking to a line just left or right of the bolt line. Bomber gear all the way up
