Description 

There is an art to avoiding the crowds on a busy day at Cathedral.... This alternate start to Fun House helps get you some mileage without having to crank too hard.... Most people who do Fun House actually do the Fun House to Pooh link up.... By combining Fun House Left(5.8) with the original finish to Fun House(5.7), you can often cruise past the crowds and get on to the midway ledge where you have many choices of where to go.... You can also head left to Three Birches (5.8) after doing the left start, but now I must tell you about the climb itself....

I love this start, the jamming is so nice...It can feel hard until you figure it out, the stemming is the key to making it feel easy...Just follow the nice corner/crack until you can make a move left and head up to the belay on Fun House....

Good times, good times....

While on lead halfway up this corner a while back, a huge spider emerged from the crack where I was about to place gear. I almost shat myself.

Ditto. I don't know if it was the same spider or maybe a visiting relative but - in case anyone was wondering - as of this past august he or she was alive and well.
