Description:

Start Pave the World (bolts 1-3), traverse left to Global Warming, climb up to the permadraws that traverse the upper cavelettes, and exit on them (Lenora's Wrath Kept 'em Lawful). Long weird bolt line hits every cool hold on this portion of Insanity Wall.

5 out of 5 stars long hueco-fest; longest route at North Shore

Exquisite rock quality and hold shapes. Hits every cool hold on this part of Insanity Wall; all the huecos and caves. Every section is fun.

I bolted Pave the World mainly to send this variation. PatW seemed too tough for me, and I expected to find a sender for it. After Global Warming, I hung toprope-solo on PtW crux a long time and figured out the trick footwork. (Learned to love TR-solos for projects near my limit, hanging forever without pressure to relieve a belayer.) Sent PtW with alot of attempts, then these two variations were pretty much wired by then. They're long though, so they took some tries.

This grade is difficult to set. Probably 11b power on the start and parts of the left traverse, plus alot of endurance. Beta spoiler...A double knee bar no-hands learned for PtW helped survive the right traverse. it's difficult to set; right knee leads, right foot sets deep on one of three possible positions.
