Description

Stand Up Comedy ascends the uphill corner of the Hallowed Hall and is listed as 42 in the Gillett guide. Start in the slot and face climb 40 feet or so to a complex series of foot transitions that trend right, toward but not on the arete. Frankly, this not a route we are ever likely to repeat. The rock was often friable and crumbling away, the moves had no pleasing kinesthetic character at all. If contrasted to routes of a similar grade on Devil's Head, the most reasonable comparable rock and elevation, this line does not fare well. While I liked the concept of the route a lot, I did not enjoy the climbing. Furthermore, the best plan, if you intend to do Stand Up Comedy, is to bring the second up to the belay and rap to the ground. Lowering off will just about trash a rope.

I enjoyed the line (1 1/2 stars). I agree that you should rap this line. Jun 10, 2004
