Description

Madmen Only ascends the obvious steep crack in a right-facing corner formed by a giant flake at the right side of the Bell Wall. Finally a Seneca route with big, solid gear and burly moves! Ascend this crack until a cruxy move that steps right and continues to a bolted anchor.

Protection

Standard rack.

Intial move off deck (a huge block) to first piece of gear is scary, reachy, and polished for the vertically challenged. The remainder of the climb has no reach issues and has fantastic gear! Very enjoyable and exciting lead! Aug 21, 2011

If I remember right, you can get a brass nut or two off the deck to protect the initial boulder problem. Sep 28, 2013

Exciting and unique climb. Start holds are all there but not protectable. Start from the block and traverse left. Wild step moves to the right wall near top and hole through the wall. May 11, 2016
