Start Insane Tree Hugger for 3 bolts. Cut up and left into the cave, exit the cave up and left to Anger's anchors. Originally went to Fangoria's anchors before Anger was bolted, but once you gain the ledge, the climbing is over so the anchor position is irrelevent.

5 out of 5 stars better than Tree Hugger! Really!!

Named after an insanely well-written sitcom's epic episode about Festivus, a replacement holiday for Christmas with its own weird traditions, including a bare metal pole, feats of strength, and the airing of grievances among the celibrants.

The route's permadraws were set so you can clean by seconding only the low easy portion of Insane Tree Hugger.

Beta spoiler: the grade for this and The Airing of Grievances depends alot on taking a full rest in the cave. It's crowded and you may have to work beta just to get in there. Also it probably depends on strategy out of that cave. I exited to make the cruxy clip over the roof, then reentered the cave for a full rest, then the roof pull is alot easier. One of these has been sent without the rest.
