Who Is Our Mystery Route Setter?

Mystery Route Setter

Some say he sets routes in his sleep, and eats T-nuts for breakfast.

Some say he was harnessed to a wall at birth, and didn’t tread upon the ground until manhood.

Some say he can breathe climbing chalk the way mortal men breathe air.

All we know is… he’s our mystery route setter.
