Comments: I was sitting 3 feet from Will S the first time I heard the "awkward" rant.

Comments: If a climb is awkward for you it means you don't possess the technique to climb it smoothly. There is no awkward rock or awkward rock climb, only awkward climbers.

Comments: I probably should have bombed this after I did it, it truly is a terrible route. But sometimes… that sort of thing just cracks my shit up. I mean, who would put the effort into bolting something so lousy? I had to admit, I had fun climbing it mostly because it was just so damn bad and the rock was even worse. Plus it's only 30' long and has a ledge you could park a car on half way up. And it required a glue in because the rock is so lousy! Won't even hold a bolt.

The beta for this one is ... more >>

Comments: Standing on a nubbin in my bad shoes in the blazing sun not liking the down climb or the landing convinced me to continue up. Glad/fortunate I didn't crater!

Comments: Both Cornflakes and Blue Collar are drawn as separate lines in josh west. I also toproped a highly contrived face route left of Woman's work several years ago. It all goes.

Comments: Those button heads are the 5/16" bomber ones. I tested them trying this route on a hot day in the sun.

Do this one when its cool.

Comments: Cool! I remember trying this this on TR a couple of times over the years. Thought it was some of the best rock at auburn and pretty difficult. I think I did all or most of the moves but was never close to linking it. Have to give it a try next time I'm up there!

Comments: The start is committing with poor feet and accidentally sandbagged. Probably .11a? I think the first bolt could stand to be moved up about 2 feet, or even a bolt added between 1 & 2 (there is a decent left hand hold to clip off) to make it a safe ground up lead. It is actually cool climbing, but you gotta be solid and stick your neck out to clip bolt 2. I cannonballed my good friend Captain Choss at least 3 times trying to lead this thing.

The other option is to do some chimney junk to th... more >>

Comments: Worth considering is that as these climbs get more traffic they feel easier. Much of the loose rock has cleaned up, and every hold is now caked in chalk. I last did Human in October, and all the subtle but easily visible feet had tick marks on them. I brushed the route on my way down but I'm sure it's all back. Much different than the first time I was on the route.

Also worth noting is that there are 2 ways to do the second half of the route. Straight up the bolt line is a shade harder and... more >>

Comments: This lead originally had a few bolts on it, which were still in when I did the route shortly after it went up. I think you'd want some small gear to supplement between those knobs on the upper face.

Comments: Way fun, way hard, way short. Don't miss trying a TR of Direct Wrench while you're there. The rope is already up and it delivers the full josh fukness experience.

Comments: If you try this thing without that black/brown trango Master cranker it is an X route for sure. Better toprope.
