From comments under "Seven Seas":
Jason Huston:
"Rich, I led Fibula Crack a couple years ago, using the "within reach" rule. Guess I figured it was probably led before that though. Fun route, but Rhoads probably couldn't do it!"

Oh! Nemesis! That stings! I guess I'll write off this contrived choss pile since you already did it anyway and I probably can't. I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!

Take a brush and a broom to Fibula Crack first. It has that slightly mucky and dusty sheen to it like other Moldy Butt routes.

I highly enjoyed this route. Good sustained crux sequence through the middle.

Remo, This is a great climb! I top roped it a few times and looked at the possibilities of leading it bitd.
It seemed sparsely protected given the gear we had then, and not a safe bet. Excuses, excuses.
Anyway in the spirit of such a cool route would someone else like to have a go at giving this thing a better description then my lame ass one. Administrators? Thanks.
