Somalian Hunger, 5.10a, Lost Wall, GA


Thin moves and horizontals lead past a fixed pin and three bolts. Not a bad idea to bring a yellow or green alien to ease your mind as you work through the crux up high.


Route is located next to that great looking handcrack, Guzzler...about 5 minutes down the trail from the main parking area


1 fixed pin, three bolts and maybe a cam. No anchors at the top...just large trees to sling

trees directly above this route should be eyed very suspiciously. Either go higher into the woods for a more secure (not dead/rotten) tree or build a gear anchor in the horizontal over Guzzler with a directional

First bolt is fairly high, make sure your belayer is on spotting duty. Crux is between 2nd and third bolt on solid, if hard to see, crimps. Top out kind of sucks. Faily fun slabby crimpy sport route if you're tired of trad.
