Sierra Nevada

West Fuller Butte, The Twisted Bit. Doniel Drazin and Brandon Thau completed an eight pitch route (IV 5.12b) on the blank 1,000' face of West Fuller Butte on November 9, 2001. Aside from one splitter-crack pitch, the route is mainly consistent 5.10/5.11 face climbing, with one crux 5.12 pitch. A semiremote Sierra environment adds to the quality of the route.
