A twister that is one of the most unique outings around. Start on the east wall of the cave, 20 feet right of Simian. Clip nine bolts in a clockwise heliz, spiraling up to two enviro-hangers in the big hole at the apex of the cave's interior.

4 out of 5 stars A bit over hyped

But still fun. Bring some donation bones. Some of them date from the 90's.

This route goes down in my book as the wildest ride yet. All the holds on the roof are there the face is thin and requires a bit of fancy foot work. What a cool climb.
