Description 

Start on Genesis then head up to the chains of Cain. The first half is like hanging on the couch – big comfy holds. Then you have to step off the couch to pull the crux once you reach Cain. Think of it as having to get off the couch to get a beer or something. Then it’s back to the couch – big comfy holds to the chains. Don’t fall getting back on the couch though it’s a little tricky here, but it’s still pretty “couch”.

Location 

Between Genesis and Cain

Protection 

Bolts. Please do not toprope off of the fixed gear at the top, use your own draws for that. If the biners on the chains look worn or do not work properly, please replace them. It's good karma.

longer draw is helpful for for the crux bolt, which is the 7th bolt (second to last). with the long draw in place, the move is much more "couch."

some degenerates have resorted to a no-hands-rest bat hang from the prominent hueco located mid-route. refrain from imitating these parlor tricks. those responsible are misguided, some say deranged.
