Description

"Nessun Dorma (None Shall Sleep) is an aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini's opera, Turandot, and is one of the best known tenor arias in all opera. It is sung by Calaf, Il principe ignoto (The unknown prince), who falls in love at first sight with the beautiful but cold Princess Turandot. However, any man who wishes to wed Turandot must first answer her three riddles. If he fails, he will be beheaded."

Nessun Dorma begins in a grungy dihedral then wanders up the light grey streak using a variety of pinches, sidepulls, and slopey edges. Right now it is pretty sandy and at times it is difficult to determine which way to go, but it may clean up nicely with time.

Eds. there is now a 2nd pitch called, Princess of Turandot, 11c.

Location

This lies about 20 feet right of Pellet Gun, on the right side of the Ruckman Cave.

Protection

12 quickdraws are more than enough.

This is a great addition to Ruckman, especially if warming up on .11c (Choss Family Robinson) isn't your thing. It's also not super slick like Pellet Gun... yet. The moves are varied & interesting & the route is long enough to get the blood flowing w/out the usual Rifle flash pump. May 29, 2008
