Sends the climber searching through a sea of holds; feels very similar to route #6. Both of these routes pay homage to the great horror movie maker Alfred Hitchcock. As a fun variation, keep hands off the big matchable block at the beginning, working the low sea of holds.

4 out of 5 stars tough crux

seems significantly harder than Shower Scene to me. Hard thin moves with lots of balance required. I did not get it cleanly on first attempt.

4 out of 5 stars like Shower Scene only sicker

See comments on Shower Scene from Psycho. A similar route with more power and reach required. Toprope-only, and so it's no pressure/all fun.
