This variation was originally defined (but likely never sent) to exit on Hideous Mi-Go. It was a lame, easy alternative topout to Hastur's, adding no value. The new defintion is stellar quality, pairing Hastur's cool start with Fear of Evil God's cool finish, with the Insane Whisperings semi-steep fun travese section in the middle, making for a fat 12a. See the Protection field to see how it runs.

5 out of 5 stars first-ascent entry

16 or more tries over weeks? Something like that. Not sure if this is harder than Fear Insanity. Violent 11d low crux but it gets a semi-rest after that.
