Share the same start as Black Rider, but trend left to move under the first bolt. The difficulties begin immediately from the first to second bolt, which require either a massive static reach or a precise dynamic power lunge. Squirm or smear your way up to a no-hands rest under the small roof. Clip the third bolt from a left-hand undercling, and then immediately enter the first crux involving power crimping getting over the small roof. After this sequence, clip the fourth bolt, and enjoy easier climbing to an interesting, mediocre rest at the fifth bolt. After the rest, the second crux there ensues with very techy, powerful, precise movement on rad pinches, pockets, and slots. This crux is highlight of the route, but also can be pretty show stopper, until you unlock the betas. Clip the sixth bolt and enjoy sustained, pumpy 5.11+ to the anchors. At the last bolt your efforts are rewarded with a surprise (not anymore if you’re reading this) iron-band hueco imported for your pleasure from the RRG.
