Description

The trailside face of the Knight is near-vertical slab covered with micro-edges. This heinous line ascends the right-hand margin of the face; it is thin, sharp, and sustained! Rumor has it that different parties initially prospected and bolted most of the route before a contentious rivalry ensued. The route was abandoned and remained incomplete for many years.

Location

On the right side of the trailside face of the Knight.

Protection

10 bolts, chains.

As far as I know, Third Times the Charm was applied by Clay Kondos to this route when it was still in its unfinished state, although I don't think he had anything to do with the route. It refers to the fact that the third party involved would be the necessary force to finish it up.

Certainly the least labor intensive new route I've done, all I had to do was slap the final few bolts in and crimp like hell. Apr 12, 2009
