Insomnia V3 6A WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Massive Vertigo Area
Awesome tall line up the tallest part of the face with the crux about 2/3 the way up, squeezing up a mini bulge. There is a committing and high stakes throw to the lip. Really fun climbing. Toprope rehearsed on the FA. A fall from the last committing throw has some bad possibilities....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

I was just talking to Peter and he said there is a whole bunch of stuff him and Sandona did back in the day that has been 'lost'. On the way up to Massive Vertigo there are two prows apparently that they did one being in the 8 range from what he remembers. there is also a prow that Peter built a landing for directly up from M.V. that he doesnt think he finished because it was 'weird' if I was describing the right thing for him. He also said there is a roof just up from M.V. that starts under the roof and dyno's out that was pretty tuff. He isn't do anything on Sunday and wants to show some lost prizes he can't really explain how to find the stuff but could find it if he was there. I told him to contact Steve and Remo but if ur psyched perhaps you guys want to call him or text him and get a tour and report :-)!!!
