Description

Located on the North Face of Snickers. Begin about 10 feet right of the high point of the base of the rock (10 feet right of Funny Bone and left of Don't Think Just Jump).

Up the face past 2 bolts (10b) then up easy horizontals to an upper face past 2 more bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. The upper section seems a bit contrived, but is OK.

Protection

4 bolts, thin to 1 inch pro; 2 bolt anchor/80 foot lower/rap.

It's seems to be a humorous spelling of humerus. Aug 3, 2013

Just wondering, is it "humerus," the bone, or is it "humorous," as in it's funny? Jul 30, 2013

I didn't have time to try all the routes on this wall, but this was the most fun of any of the 4-5 mixed routes in this area. Def better than Night Shift which is fun but has inferior rock quality. Recommended. Jan 28, 2013

I agree with the 10c rating, though I'm not a gym climber and the section at the bottom may be reminiscent of gym type climbing moves at least for JT where I'm more accustomed to cracks and smeary types of routes. Pumpy moves down low lead to an easier section where I rested up for the exciting exit sequence. I really liked this route. Apr 18, 2011

Had alot of fun on this one, mantled no hands at the start, then fun moves past the first two bolts. Top is easy but slightly overhanging so that is exciting. More continuous would be a classic. Mar 18, 2011

I rated the route a bit harder than advertised and may have, uhh, busted off a semi-key hold between the first and second bolts. Was a right hand two finger-esque knob just up and right from the seam that faces left and sweeps up and disappears prior to the shallow horizontal past the first bolt). Anyhoo, unless you're tall, this may be a bit more of a thrutch now.

Oh, and I traversed in from the left too, but, my partner, slightly taller than me, motored straight up. Dec 1, 2008

I thought this route was fun and enjoyed the climbing. I like how you were made to think almost right from the start. Easier climbing to follow but nice features. Makes a great link up with the .11 up high.

This is a very fun route with great moves. It's only downside is the easy section in the middle that interrupts the flow. Oct 14, 2005

Traversed in from a bit left at start as well. Wish the anchors were a bit right, making them harder to use for Funny Bone. Apr 25, 2005

A fun addition to the the wall with interesting moves on great rock down low and also at the top; the middle section is kinda chossy though, so heads up. At the start it's easier and safer to traverse in high to the 1st bolt as opposed to starting low and manteling. Two stars out of five.

Take supplemental pro to 2.5" (not 1" as indicated). There's a spot for a gold camalot after the 2nd bolt and another spot for a red or gold just before the 3rd bolt. Nov 19, 2004
