First route on insanity wall. Route climbs up to a ledge protected by 2 bolts. There's a roof permadraw that is interesting to clip...if you don't clip this and you blow the clip, it may result in a scary fall, possibly a deck. The permadraw is long so it should be reachable by most...this route may be a bit more difficult for shorter people. Crux is pulling the roof onto face.


Left most route on insanity wall, however in an update to guidebook, this route is now considered to be located in the Beyond the Sea wall.


4 bolts, 1 permadraw under roof, anchors.

Once you clip the permadraw on the roof, there's a sweet dyno move to big holds on the lip of the roof.

Make sure you have a couple of different quickdraws saved for #4. Double-check the draw once you've clipped #4 (piece above the perma). It is possible for the gate to stay open or lie directly on the lip of the roof. Switch gate-facing/draw if necessary. PM or Tommy if this happens to anyone else.
