Cleverly named after it's neighbor Reasons to be Cheerful, This one is Fearful due to the detached nature of the entire route. You can feel the huge feature vibrating the whole way up! this is probably why it never got bolted.

Start as for one of the corners then gain the arete and stick to it for an amazingly fun climb! Great moves all the way on perfect rock, the only problem is that you have to climb one of the corners to get there then figure out a good anchor for the TR. Anyway, if you have a chance... do it. You will not regret it.


Between the Central Corner and Twit is a big sharp edged arete. This route climbs right up it.

Pretty sure that I was the first one to toprope it in the 90's. Cool route, but I figured it was not smart to bolt it due to the proximity of the adjacent trad routes and the vibrational state of the fin. Sep 19, 2013
