Description

Though it's a short climb, Digital Macabre is an excellent route with a fun finger crack at the crux.

Climb a corner and crack system up to a shallow scoop. Pull the overhang and move up into a slanting finger crack; follow this to a cedar tree.

Location

Starts about 25' left of Razor Worm.

Protection

Small cams, nuts; new ring anchors at the top.

Great route, but short...3-4 finger sized cams and a couple of thin hands pieces is about all that's needed.

The first part is gigantic loose flakes (not great pro) so you may want to boulder almost into the scoop. Feb 27, 2007

Amazing hyperbole in the 2007 Climbing desk calendar:

"The crux of this astounding splitter commences at the start, as you battle to surmount a giant roof without succumbing to the horrendous pump..."

It's a nice route and all, but: astounding? giant roof? horrendous pump? Come on... Jun 4, 2007

This route is pretty short. It felt more like a boulder problem. The crack up top was more fun than the small roof. Dec 22, 2015
