Description

This is the obscure and slightly more difficult right variation of Ride the Lightning. Start as for Ride the Lightning and get both hands up to the crack. Rather than move left along the crack, undercling the top of it and bust straight up to a tiny crimp below the lip with your right hand. Snag the lip and move left to pull the mantle.

Location

Find the obvious arching crack that is Ride the Lightning and you've found this climb. Downclimb off the back down the easy slab.

Once you dead point to the crimp you have a really tiny left foot that you have to use and then you can get your right foot in the crack. Getting to the crimp was extremely reachy for me so I thought this was a little harder than Ride the Lightning and not nearly as fun. Footage starts at 1:30 youtube.com/watch?v=cuMVEjw… Dec 30, 2015

Played around with this a few weeks ago for a few minutes solo waiting for some buddies, the undercling thing is the crack is actually super positive so moving right hand to the crimp was fine, but the move after that was perplexing. I felt like I wanted to get a right foot in the crack but at that point there's no crack to get a right foot on, and reading the description here it glosses over that move. I was almost certainly missing something, and didn't put too much effort into it, but if anyone has beta I'd be interested.

Surprisingly pretty cool! May 24, 2015
