Description 

Many consider this to be the best problem at Nine Corners. Start sitting with a left hand on a good edge and your right on a sloper. Throw up a right heel and move up to a sloping crimp rail, using sidepulls out left to finally bump up to good left hand crimp. Make a couple more crimpy moves and mount the slopey topout.

Location 

The back face of the Wall boulder

Protection 

A couple pads

Ole Thorazine is not tall and bold but gets everything you need in those 11' to be world class. Crimps, tension, crazy beta, send you home crying wet fires, a tough lip that your hands just can't quite hold on to, and a rad mantle finale.

Only in bouldering will you find a line that everyone thinks is classic with a LAY-DOWN start! You might not think your feet are anything to fuss about on the problem with ledges for feet but mind you put a toe in the wrong spot you will immediately be on the ground! Get your toes dialed in and you will stick like glue.

I have always admired this line and feel strongly that if you are at Nine you should be getting on this line. Don't let the grade scare you off, give it a whirl. Each move can be climbed from the ground. Why not try???
