The Terrorist at night..scary!

Description 

Stand start with the obvious sloper ball in your right hand and a left hand on one of the low crimps. Paste a foot in the corner and pull up to the sloping seam. Rock up until you get a left foot on the starting crimp and stay balanced enough to free up a hand to crimp the higher seam. Technique your way up the slab and topout on jugs. More technical than powerful, but classic either way.

Location 

East side of Ride the Lightning boulder.

Protection 

Pads and spotters.

I really like this problem. It took me forever to do it because I just couldn't commit to the slab. My feet just didn't want to stick. For what it's worth, I found this a bit harder than Ride the Lightning.

I heard once that the orriginal line started a bit to the left, with a stand start off of some crimps, above the sit start variation (Polish Terrorist, V8.) I still haven't sent either variation but I like the "original" line better because the high right foot described above just annoyes me.

I agree that this is a harder line than Ride the Lightning... Lightning took me a handful of tries where terrorist took me over a year of off and on attempts... likely more than 50 tries...

More awkward than hard, IMO. But I also think RTL is a soft 6.

Sending on his 4th session coming in from the arete on the right as he couldn't reach the normal start holds without piling up pads.

I got on this for the first time this weekend and I want it pretty bad now. This is one of those climbs that you know could go any burn but each time you're up there it seems way more awkward than it looks.

I just sent this today after 5 falls! Such a sick problem. I see what you mean about the topout, Mike.
