A bouldery start, protected by thin gear, leads to a section of good hands. The line finishes on a flared finger splitter and face moves.
The splitter crack right of the God of Thunder corner variations. The anchor is independent of the corner variations.
Single rack from 0.5-2". Bolted anchor.

This variation has been the standard for 5.11a for a long time at the leap.

Really? That's the first I've heard it called .11a. I'm not sure you're wrong, but the white and green guides both have it at .11b. The carville is a mess as usual. I've always thought this one is easier than Black Pyre though.

Tough for the first 15 or so feet, great hands, fingers, and a slopey finish afterwards. THe 2nd pitch looks awesome, but sadly, I had neither the gear nor the chutzpah to lead it.
