Description

Climb Comic Relief, but do all the harder variations which are:

P1, 5.10+. Climb the direct start (from the top of the pillar, take a thin crack zagging right with a small bush in it).
P4, 5.10. Climb the Black Dihedral variation (from the pitch 3 belay, head up the obvious, black dihedral, then traverse straight left).
P6, 5.11/11+. Climb the Lightning Bolt Cracks (the incredible zig-zagging thin hands crack off the ledge, you can't miss it).

Note: all variations start and end back on the original Comic Relief.

Location

Use the same exact start location as Comic Relief. The description was taken from that route's page:

Descend SOB gully to a white, polished slabby area under the third prominent buttress on your left. Look for a prominent, left-angling feature low down (the "Vector Traverse" on Escape Artist) and a beautiful, thin, curving crack to the right of this. Head up the slab to a worn path leading to a 100 foot shoulder of broken rock. Scramble 4th and easy 5th Class up and right to a large block/flake and the bottom of the route. All pitch lengths are approximates, and like many routes here, optional belay points may be used.

Protection

A standard rack is fine. 3 x 0.75 C4s are nice for Lightning Bolt Crack.
