Long moves to start through the wierd hueco features. Hard sloping moves after exiting the huecos. No hands rest at the break before the steep overhang. Head up the steep wall with a hard move a few bolts in and several long pulls on edges. Get some relief when the angle of the wall changes but then make a really long move or sloping pulls to get to another good break. Make cruxy moves on thin edges to a sloping shelf. Long moves on crimps takes you up the last headwall to the anchors.

There are a couple of holds on this route that are re-enforced with glue.


The second route from the right edge of the Madness cave. It starts by climbing up to some very large huecos to the right of the bolt line.


Bolts and a bolted anchor.

So I recently met the brother of the man responsible for this contribution to the community. The name of the man responsible for the FFA was Brian Toy. Credit where credit is due!
