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.

I totally agree with awkward and weird. Sometimes more satisfying to send those. Fun, delicate traverse to kind of desperate corner that felt hard on onsight. Definitely pulled out some shoulder scums while trying find the jug at top of corner. Sep 18, 2017

Awkward and weird, so a must do!

The anchor is invisible from below and is up on a slab well above the last bolt. Two solid bolts with a ring, so no reason to lower earlier.

It did seem like a foot hold has disappeared from the last ledge. I'm 5'6" and just campused up and right from the good left hand hold. Maybe I missed something. Mar 16, 2017

Very beta intensive. There are a lot of sucker holds. May 31, 2011
Harder than Elanor...\;o) IMHO. Aug 7, 2009

1 star? Come on! At some BoCan cliffs, this would be 3 stars and the best climb on the crag. Jul 14, 2005
