Great hard friction practice. Glide up the spotless face between Seventh Seal and Ethereal Crack. The easiest access to the anchors is via The Beelzebub Corner.


Just beyond The Echo Roof itself lies a giant leaning flake, The Ethereal Crack Buttress. This route climbs the barren face between the two finger cracks on the buttress.


A toprope problem. Bouchard "led" this route with hooks and screamers for protection.

It kinda felt harder than future but probably because it was more sustained vs a short section. Kinda felt easier too cause it wasnt secure. I like this better than Future Shock Apr 24, 2013

Definitely harder than Future Shock, but I only TR'd Dunn's. Future Shock seems much easier with modern shoes and should be downgraded; it felt on grade in EBs. John, Aiwass is awesome, though I fell a bit short personally on it. Hella fun though, and some fun climbing above as well. Apr 24, 2013

Now I want to try unwanted guests. And ego trip, and rapid transit. I just feel good with steep slabs I guess. I like them. Apr 24, 2013
there is just no way that the direct line in Dunn's is 12, ive climbed this a bunch of times and its only slightly harder than future shock, which is 11a/b at best. Last Tango is much harder than both but is a short burly boulder problem. try bits and pieces above Loose Lips, if you think that dunn's is 12 then you will find this quite the challenge, strando says the falls are clean. I wouldnt know, I didnt fall.... May 5, 2013
