you're not allowed to use the gargantuan hueco on the route. SCEC will be after your ass.

If you like crimping this one is for you... super sustained throught the middle 25 feet or so.

If the gargantuan hueco is off limits, then why did the route maker put it there?

I might be more paranoid than I should be, but one of the anchor biners looked worn through about halfway, so I moved them both up and lowered through the chains to clean. I didn't have any leavers with me today, but I'll bring some with me next time I'm at Solar.

Does anyone know if the name of this route comes from Frederick Nitche's, The Gay Science?

Does anyone know if the 2nd hueco was not intended to be used by FA? Does using change the grade?

from what I've been told the FA did not use the second hueco. going into the hueco is kinda tough and clipping the draw from there is weird. there is a good rest hold on the direct/original route just past the point where you'd go over to the hueco.

fruity rules belong in the gym... if you were climbing this route onsight, it would be plain stupid to skip a no-hands rest

climb2core said on February 8th, 2012
Getting in/out of the second hueco didn't seem any more awkward or off route than many other climbs with hueco's that I have climbed. But, it sounds like it would drop the grade if the FA graded it 12c without the hueco, much as Paradise Lost was 13b without that rest. I think this route should just be called 12b then because there is a 12b way to climb it. I agree with Dustin, it seems more contrived to pretend that a huge no hands hueco is not 3 feet from the line the climb takes.

This route would not even be solid at 12a if you use the second hueco, just a couple of balancy crimp moves leading into a giant no hands that skips the only moderately challenging move on the route. Which, besides being challenging is the only fun move on the route (big move off sloper rail to good incut left hand crimp). HEY GUESS WHAT CLIMB2CORE AND DUSTONIAN, sport climbing is contrived. And if you use that 2nd hueco i suggest posting an fa and calling it bitch mentality. Also climb2core, or ian or whatever the fuck your name is, you need to seriously chillthe fuck out. The way you so quickly snapped at andrew in the forum regarding training is unacceptable. The way you call him stagnant and refer to him as mediocre and not pushing standards in climbing (13b comment) just reveals to everyone the truth which we all have known since u registered that stupid name (climb2core). YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE. so stop worrying about which climbs you are gonna send and how u are gonna send them. Start worrying about the unacceptable manner in which you conduct yourself on this forum. Also, you and your wife/girlfriend are ugly, inconsiderate people! MY TWO CENTS

Anonymous, thanks for your insightful comments. Seems you have me at a disadvantage though... You know all there is to know about me, and I don't even know your name. If you ever decide to grow a set or run across me at a crag, make sure to introduce yourself.
