Description 

The Riddler is the next route to the left of The Joker. Climb up a slab and veer right past a cruxy move followed by hard moves up a steep, left-facing corner to a stance. The final bulge is steep and enjoyable. It is worth doing if all the other routes are occupied. As Fred Knapp states in his best-of guide, this route climbs like an Eldo route except for the seven closely spaced bolts.


Protection 

7 bolts.

1 star? Come on! At some BoCan cliffs, this would be 3 stars and the best climb on the crag.

Very beta intensive. There are a lot of sucker holds.
