Description

Starts on the shadowy west face and climbs the crimpy steep and juggy left side of the wall to the belay ledge. It shares chains with Drop'em South. Use longer QDs on the last two bolts to avoid rope rub as you lower.
Now about the name. My original goal was to do the east wall southern arete and the direct line to The Totem Pole in one day. My friend called me a pathilogical optimist, thus the name, so Austin named the route after we finished the direct line the west wall and the southern arete in a day. Thanks to all my friends and the OG FAs for helping with these lines.
