Somalian Hunger, 5.10a, Lost Wall, GA

Description 

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.

Location 

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

Protection 

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

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.

I looked for this route on april 15th 2016 and only saw the fixed pin and one bolt up high. I think it has been chopped.
