Description Suggest change

Another excellent Easter Rock sport route. A little questionable in my opinion since it crosses the line of the great trad line, Thunderdome, just for a link-up, and one of the bolts affects easier climbing on that line.

Begin by clipping the first two bolts of the Riddler. Just below where that route tackles its slabby crux, move left past a bolt (too close to TDOME, IMHO) up into the rest stance below the crux bulge of Thunderdome. From here climb up and left on a funky, undercling traverse (crux), which would constitute the only independent climbing on this route, to join with the pumpy finish of Elanor.

The climbing is very good. I give it one star for the issues mentioned above, and the fact one is not likely to repeat it given the quality of the other routes that occupy the same section of rock.

Protection Suggest change

6-7 bolts to the anchor of ELANOR.
