Climb Apollo past the second bolt; bear left to blocky pinches below roof. Climb left bolt line past jugs to a hard move to get established in a dihedral. Make a cruxy clip to a big move up and left to a jug. Race through apollo-esque climbing to the "mercy seat" in the bottom of the big dihedral 1 bolt from the finish. Here it is, self-explanatory throwing up the dihedral required. Very fun!Good route, a bit harder than Apollo, but much easier than the Pod....[more] Browse More Classics in WV
