A bold climb up the middle of the Eberhorn (the taller of the Twin Sisters). Shallow pockets make for insecure footholds. Bolts are widely spaced and were drilled on lead.

5 out of 5 stars Amazing climb - but scary

I distinctly remember climbing this route. It was a hot September day and I led the crux first pitch. The bolts were wide apart and the foot and hand holds insecure. Very delicate climbing was required and a good headspace. If you were prone to sewing machine leg, you would be flying.
