Two Lips (

Direct route for "Tiptoe Through The Two Lips" 5.10a...

A two-bolt belay has been added at the top of the first pitch.

A large "packrat midden" was discovered on the ledge just above the first belay.

The midden was analyzed at a laboratory, and estimated to be 30,000 years old, dating back to the last Ice Age.

It contained the remains of a variety of high elevation "montane" tree and shrub species, such as Doug fir, limber pine, white fir, Rocky Mountain juniper, snowberry, wild rose, and gooseberry.
