Popular route, powerful and overhanging for the grade. Rightmost lead-route on the wall. The right cliff edge is off. VARIATION "Herbert West's Weird Instruments" 5.10a: right cliff edge is on route. VARIATION "Psychic Venom" 5.10c: set a toprope on the anchors and start between the cracks of routes #11 and #12; both cracks are off-route. Pull the little roof.

2 out of 5 stars Icy Touch

I thought this route felt kind of awkward and pumpy. Didn't seem to suite me and can't say I was a big fan.

This is an okay route. getting over the little bulge can be tricky.

4 out of 5 stars not so much of a warm up...

2011SEP: warmed up on it and had no problem. even down-climbed it cleanly. go figure :)

as i thought it would be. it was a little hard to read and more pump factor than i was expecting on some small holds.

4 out of 5 stars So maybe I should work on having more muscles...

had a lot of fun working out the sequence. fun climb. definitely did not realize how over hung it was until I started climbing. pretty pumpy. hopefully I'll be able to lead it next time.

4 out of 5 stars first route at monster

Fun, pumpy and sequence-y. Moved past the crux cleanly, forgot my sequence and took a hang. Will get the redpoint on our next trip out.
