Follow gently overhanging jugs up to the final roof crux. Pull up and right over the roof to good clipping holds above the anchors.


After reaching the Far Side cliff proper, walk 5 minutes along the base past Sympathy For the Devil and before Well Hung. Hume's Horror sits in an alcove formed by two slightly overhanging, pocketed, red and yellow walls. With your back to the route, you would be staring directly at the west face of Menses Prow.


5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with chains.

First bolt is so low there's no point in clipping it. The crux is not z-clipping the anchor ;) Mar 22, 2015

This might get the award for the most shoe rubber and chalk on any climb at Shelf. Fun (almost brainless) climbing up jugs the entire way. Don't think it's 10b. Several 9s at Shelf are significantly harder. May 3, 2015

Managed to get clean even though I totally z-clipped the anchor. May 14, 2017
To get to this climb (and Induction Oven), walk quite a ways beyond Akhenaten. After Akhenaten, you'll pass a gap in the cliff band on your left with no routes then another section of cliff with no routes on it. Then you'll eventually get to this little alcove about 20+ feet across with Induction Oven, Hume's Horror on the face, and Mental Hopscotch on the protruding arete to the right.

Felt like a Red River Gorge climb. May 6, 2018
