Description

True Comedian is located West of Divine Wind and Radlands on the short face with five bolted routes. TC actually starts on the small face right of the face with all of the anchors. Start on some very thin and improbable smears and edges and then step left onto the main face. The hard stuff is on the lower slab, but the main face still holds a difficult crux in surmounting the roof. TC is another challenging addition. Look for technical footwork on good rock, but save the juice for the final moves. Short but cool.

Seven draws and a rope.

The upper 1/2 of this route is so disjointed from the lower that it doesn't even feel like a route. In fact, we climbed the upper part without even noticing the lower part since there is a huge belay ledge between. It might be 10+ done that way. May 26, 2011
The lower boulder is fun but contrived. Apr 29, 2015
