20 feet done & 140 to go!! Tony C. is definitly Co...


Crazy long, this route makes a good "warm-up" for the area. 160' of hands to wide hands in a left-facing corner. Rests aplenty keep the grade down. The crux is a short wide section halfway up. Double rope rappel.


This is the obvious long hands corner just left of Pigs On the Wing, to the right of Goodbye Cruel World.


(1) each 1" to 1 3/4", (5) 2", (4) 3", (3) 3.5", and (1) 4" piece.

Not true. Whoever did the first 6 routes in the book did this one, too.

Seems like Karl Kelley & Dylan Warren FA'd
'numb', as well as the other routes that got

gotta say, careful pulling your ropes and rapping off this sucker. Easy to get em sucked into the crack and wrapped around some unknown junk deep deep in there. Carry loops down in slings as you rap and then pull way from the side, almost had to chop my 70 the other day.

Definitely be careful not to get your rope stuck in the lower third. It was great to protect the start with a #6. A #5 right off the halfway ledge is also very, very handy. Amazing, long route. Donīt miss it!
