Stemming out to the finger crack on Funny Farm.

Description 

Funny Farm is another great line, adding to the growing list at the Cliffs of Insanity. Start with fingers in a corner that gradually tapers down to tips with pods and then nothing. Clip a bolt on the right face and make suprisingly tricky and sequential moves to get through the crux. Continue up hands and big hands for another 25' until it is possible to stem out right to a nice finger crack on the right wall. Steep fingers with occasional pods for your hands and feet will take you to the anchor. This route may be a classic, check it out.


Location 

This route is located 4 feet left of Iocane Powder's start.

Protection 

The following gear is in Camalots:(1).02, (2).03, (3).04, (4).05, (1).75, (2)#2, (2)#3, and there is one bolt. Anchor is two bolts with chains. Save some of the small stuff for the top.

First off, definitely a unique and fun route! Kind of a cross between Zion and Red Rocks style.

The rack recommendation is a bit off! I was glad to have even smaller cams (.1 Camalot, 00 TCU, etc) and most people will want (3) .75 Camalots, for sure.

This route will get wicked sandy after rain. It was absolutely filthy when I first went up it...not free-climbable. After a serious brushing, it was quite enjoyable. Kudos!
