Proud line put up by Tony just before getting hitched and moving to Arizona. Nearly 60m long with only two bolts and lots of thin protectable face. In order to maintain the mystery and adventure of East Gruesome I must be vague. Begin off a large boulder with your first protection piece in a hueco. Join the original route for the last 30'. This is an intense lead, be ready.
