voluntary Madness 13a photo by- ryan jay stanley


be ready to work right off the ground! You will traverse right to the anchors of borderline after the 5th bolt end here for 12d or continue back up left to high anchor for 13a.
there is a direct finish in the works that should ring in around 13c or d.


start 10' left of borderline,


6 bolts to LO

Nice route. Really long moves on small edges with a few good rests here and there. I was a bit confused about the different endings. If I understand correctly, straight up is 13+, if you veer right at second to last bolt and end at Borderline it's 12d, and if from Borderline's anchor you follow the lip of the wall back left to direct finish anchors it's 13a.
