Barbarian Rising shares the start with Taninted Lo...


Barbarian Rising and Tainted Love share the same blocky start, followed by a nice section of hands. At the roof, move out right underneath (5.11), and gain the rest just before the crux. A hand full of small TCUs should bolster your confidence, and unconventional cranking will lead you past the crux (.12-). Though the grade backs off after the crux it is still a haul to the anchors.

A unique and powerful line.


Starts just to the left of Locks of Dread.


Bulk up on #000- #2 TCUS, doubles on the rest to #1 Camalot.
