Theater of Pain is a magnificent route and one of the marquee lines of Cooks Wall. Originally Theater was a mixed 13bR route which made it notorious back in the 90's as one of the only mixed 13's in NC. A runout down low and a few pieces of strenuous to place gear in the middle and at the top made the line physically taxing and unnerving. As route popularity grew, the nut protecting the top crux became accepted as fixed gear and safety inspired Seth to reequip it as primarily a sport line.
Today only the fixed nuts protecting the top crux remain as a reminder of this historical line's original mystique.
Today only the fixed nuts protecting the top crux remain as a reflection of this wonderful lines original mystique.
