Description 

Transworld is a commanding line that soars up the left edge of the Madness cave. The hardest of the cave routes, it sports three distinct crux sections that demand a breadth of skills and steel nerves. Begin with 50' of 5.12- to reach a good rest at the horizontal break. The first crux starts here with long reaches or dead points between slopey edges, followed by big moves through the steepest part of the roof. Recover at a poor shake before the second crux, which requires a long move left off more slopey crimps to the bottom edge of a big flake. Continue up the flake to a great rest before the final sequential roof and technical head wall. The head wall is often wet after a hard rain, but dries sufficiently pretty quickly. There is also some pretty bad rock on the lower 5.12 bit, but this hasn't seemed to tarnish this route's reputation.

The name refers to the philosophical concept of a being who is depraved, or evil, in multiple realities, i.e. this world and the afterlife. What will they think of next...

Location

It's worth noting that none of the holds this guy uses to do the crux are present anymore. So definitely don't watch this for beta like I tried to!

Has the difficulty changed with breakage, or just a new sequence?
