Description

Stand start with the obvious sloper ball in your right hand and a left hand on one of the low crimps. Paste a foot in the corner and pull up to the sloping seam. Rock up until you get a left foot on the starting crimp and stay balanced enough to free up a hand to crimp the higher seam. Technique your way up the slab and topout on jugs. More technical than powerful, but classic either way.

Location

East side of Ride the Lightning boulder.

Protection

Pads and spotters.

I got on this for the first time this weekend and I want it pretty bad now. This is one of those climbs that you know could go any burn but each time you're up there it seems way more awkward than it looks.

More awkward than hard, IMO. But I also think RTL is a soft 6. Aug 5, 2008

I agree that this is a harder line than Ride the Lightning... Lightning took me a handful of tries where terrorist took me over a year of off and on attempts... likely more than 50 tries... Nov 9, 2007

I heard once that the orriginal line started a bit to the left, with a stand start off of some crimps, above the sit start variation (Polish Terrorist, V8.) I still haven't sent either variation but I like the "original" line better because the high right foot described above just annoyes me. Apr 19, 2007

I really like this problem. It took me forever to do it because I just couldn't commit to the slab. My feet just didn't want to stick. For what it's worth, I found this a bit harder than Ride the Lightning. Apr 18, 2007
