Description 

The Culture of Fear extends off the anchors of Panic Attack. Unlike the lower section, this route earns its name by forcing climbers to do 5.12 arete climbing with good whipper potential. After Panic Attack, start up onto some face climbing which leads to the insecure dihedral. Exiting the dihedral is the technical crux on very small holds. Once on the arete, begin the powerful crux while your feet pass the bolt below! Passing the last bolt has one last thuggy move that leads to a ledge where you clip the anchor out left.

Protection 

Pre hung from the top of Panic Attack, which is 7 bolt plus one for the anchor. (Bring a long sling for the anchor if you don't want to clip the end of the chain of panic attack)

Location 

Extension off panic attack located in the Christian Brothers area

crimp/sidepull in the dihedral left face has broken off. there is still a 2 finger edge but the better 3 finger angled crimp to the left of this edge is gone. the best sidepull further left is still there making the move to the arete still doable but tough.

This route is cleaning up nicely. A lot of the hand and foot holds are losing there grit and becoming more obvious and user friendly due to a decent amount of traffic over the past year. This route is finally ready for frequent climbers at Smith Rocks who are looking for another 5.12 route to attempt to onsight. I got on it a few weeks ago and had a great time. Feels harder than Latest Rage but on par with Vision.
