Blank Man begins on Paradigm and then moves onto Insectophobe at the second bolt of Paradigm. At a large hueco mid-route, the route veers right and finishes on the last three bolts of Mississippi Burning.

Going left at the hueco and back into Paradigm is still a project. Ask Chris Hirsch for the name; he somehow never forgets names of choss pile routes, i.e. his bolted lines in the Black Hills.

A sustained route, with a low crux that, clocking in at probably v7, involves a few low-percentage moves on small crimps. Key beta, according to Joel Anderson, is to "crimp hard." Brilliant.

For best rope management, skip the the bolts on paradigm and just stick clip the first two bolts on Insectophobe.


8 bolts. For the start, stick clip first two on Insectophobe.
