Nathan Bancroft on the second crux of Event Horizo...
The line of strength up the intimidating, steep red wall.
The wall is broken by prominent horizontals that provide great rests between very difficult boulder problems. The first involves some very small holds that you have to bear down on or a long reach. The second has sloping side pulls and the third is kind of barn doorish. A final intimidating, i.e. runout, but easier section leads to the anchor.
It is possible to avoid the last bit and probably at the same grade by stepping right to the anchor of Thunderstruck, though the original route heads up higher and left.
Beautiful red wall right of Cat Daddy
