Start as for Doc's Dangle, with a reachy move by the first bolt. While Doc's Dangle soon goes left, following the natural line, 'Somebody...' continues straight up, past 2 very close bolts and strange pockets/sidepulls/tiny crimps. The only problem is that it is so close to the route to its left that it is much easier to clip the bolts and move through the crux using holds shared with that route... so you might as well just climb 'Docs Dangle' instead and spare yourself the dilemma of having to concern yourself with what is "on" and what's "off". or maybe I was just missing something.


This climb shares the same start as Doc's Dangle, and is in fact a more contrived variation of the same route.


4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
