Pitch 1 5.10b 10 meters: The dark lord first offers a welcome warm-up for the battle ahead. Climb the nearly horizontal roof with handjams, finger locks and underclings. Belay off of small gear on the manky ledge.
Pitch 2 5.11c 30 meters: A tenuous move off belay leads to a good rest before the wicked tips to hips crux sequence up the overhanging corner. Success earns a squeeze chimney thrashing. Belay at fixed stoppers on a good but cramped stance.
Pitch 3 5.11b 30 meters: Lichen was sacrificed during the FA of this pitch, earning the name Lichen 4 Lucifer. Climb up the tight chimney, out a wide hands roof to a punishing off-fist corner. Belay at the angling ledge (backing up the fixed stoppers).
Pitch 4 5.9+ 40 meters: Stem and thrutch up the wide corner protected with tipped 5s (or the optional 6) then continue up the thin, slabby corner. If the upper corner feels too bold, finish with the last pitch of Proverbs of Hell.
