Description:

Climb the crack to the little roof/bulge and pull it. Shares its start with route #10. Donna Kwock got the first onsight. Lovecraft's fictional universe was controlled by evil gods and not controlled by any benevolent gods. Scary, huh? He intended god Cthulhu to be unpronouncable by humans, but I see most people humorously choke on Nyarlathotep. Lovecraft wrote a trippy short novel called The Dreamquest of Unknown Kaddath, in which Narlathotep and some silly cats appear.

3 out of 5 stars Nyarlathotep...?!?!?

Don't get the name but never did play Dungeons and Dragons. Onsighted this one, thought it was easier than Invisible Slayer, but when I told that to my friend he got on it and flailed. So, who knows!

4 out of 5 stars demands a tricky solution and power

This route isn't as sustained as Invisible Slayer (they share starts), but it requires a powerful pull over the bulge in addition to the tricky shared start.
