Description [Suggest Change]

First pitch is very thin and unrelenting. Several cruxes throughout, one requiring standing up with one leg and no handholds to assist. And a vicious redpoint crux waiting to kill all your efforts. Take a no hands rest at the belay anchor and go for the top or break up into two pitches. Second half is much easier (5.10) but engaging, and a classic by itself. Difficult to grade, but possibly the hardest slab in the hills?

Location [Suggest Change]

Nightman faces the highway and starts about 60'? right of 'Real Roxanne'. Immediately right of 'Igor'. Belay from on top of highest fin at the base of the wall. Approach from the left. Two 60m rope raps from the summit.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Chain anchors
