I spied this line before I left for big rocks. It's an appealing looking crack- Rhoads, Burt did you guys lead this? Props.

I have never lead "Couch of Pain" nor have I considered it. No gear. I have TR'd it alot of times over the years. It was a favorite of mine and my friend Jerry. There is a real major core move right in the middle that was great for working that particular weakness of mine.... I always have loved the name too..

Hmm...perhaps the crack I remember was typical Devil's Lake incipient bullshit. Well, I know the line and I think you should lead it Rhoads and then my undying props will be given to you along with $80.

$80.00....??

Yah!! Carrot dangling...

Hmm.... could by trad gear you couldn't use solo'n "Couch of Pain".

Andy owes me $80 for the big pig haul bag I gave him. BTW, Andy I took off the chest strap on that thing cause it's a BS elastic one. I was going to fasten another made of something that didn't stretch but didn't get to it. Should be an easy fix.

I did spy a micro cam placement on this about halfway up in a horizontal crack.
