Description

Riddler is the second bolted climb on the diagnol ledge cutting up and left across the left half of Mayhem Cove.As mentioned above, the first bolt is a long way off the ground, but it is pretty easy to reach (though hard to spot)unless your ~5.8 or shorter. In this case its a scary-as-hell clip!From there, pull the roof, continue on some overhanging, and occasionally dirty, climbing until you reach a left-facing block. After pulling the block the climbing all-of-the-sudden turns slabby, runout and mossy. While the overhanging section of the climb kicked ass, this mossy section seemed to be a completely different climb and the source of a lot of rope drag... i honestly didn't finish it.

Protection

10 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. The first bolt is about 18 feet of the deck, and if you fall before clipping, you will continue to slide, bounce and roll down the precarious ledge from where the climb begins. To save your and your belayer's lives making an anchor is a wonderful idea. Almost any sized cam will do.
