Power through the crux of Grace and pull into the overhang. Move slightly right to a higher side-pull (good shake) and clip the 3rd bolt on Dark Lord. Power through the roofs and finish at cold shuts.


Starts on Grace (10 right of Step Child) and connects into Dark Lord.


8 bolts

Are you saying that a linkup that starts on one route, climbs into a second route, then finishes on the first route is an independent line? Even when they share an anchor?!

It's a linkup that climbs the 1st two bolts of Grace and finishes on DL and is probably the most direct line on the steeps of Mordor wall. Kinda wish this was the first line, rather than a 'linkup'. Then Grace and DL would have been variations. Have fun. Let me know what you think.
