Mitch prior to being eaten up!


5.11 "AWKWARD" This is pumppy hard work that eats gear and mere mortals! Very impressive lead!


North side of first tower in obvious crack.

Definitely the best part on here is humping your way up the fin. No other way to do it and make sure there is a video camera rolling somewhere. Be careful around the dirt clod towards the top as it is a HUGE dirt clod. Jam well behind it (you can see where the clod begins and the rock begins in the crack) and reach way around left to get around. Overall, a fun and exciting line that we all agreed on that only needs to be done once in a lifetime.

Hi Mitch, Roy and Marilla
Matt Penrod and I did this route in the late 90's. He aided it and I followed on top rope. We felt like whoever did "The Old Timers Route" and put the rap anchors in probably did Mitch's Madness as well so we didn't feel like we got the FA.
Take Care,
Kyran Keisling
