Airtime prior to sending, SteveZ on battlecry.

Description 

Starts in the middle of the wall down low. Stick clip the first bolts. Start pulling on some good pockets up to a long reach where you will find some goods holds. After some pristine pocket climbing, you will enter the "top" crux, which consists of shallow pockets and adjusting the feet to make a long reach to a good left hand, which has been known to crunch the left index finger. Then you have one more long move to a right hand slot. I recommend skipping the bolt that is at the left hand. It tends to be difficult to clip and the ride is clean. Besides, this will make the last hard move more committing. Top out to a large ledge with anchors. This is one of the best routes in the entire canyon, and possibly in the whole universe.

Location 

To the right of Ricochet.
