Description Suggest change

START- About 15-20 ft left of the start(s) of Holy Grail and the "[Redacted]" Knights in White Satin, the ground starts to rise up about 5 ft to a very minor height-of-land.  Hike up this, past the red bolt 25 feet above you (Red Knight’s Romp)  and continue down for a few feet, then the crude path climbs back up for 20-25 ft.  Make a scramble type move and then traverse 20-25 ft back right on a 4-inch ledge to a sort of tree island. (Actually more like a tree peninsula jutting upwards.) 

ALTERNATE START - It is also possible to start on Red Knight’s Romp, moving up and left to a 2-3 inch ledge and traverse left 10-15 feet to the START. There is now (July 2022) a single bolt anchor at the ledge, the trees being rather small.

BEST Approach - Rap into the “tree island” START from the P1 anchor of Red Knight’s Romp and pull the ropes to lead. 

P 1 – Climb straight up the line of 4 bolts, trending right at the top to intercept Red Knight’s Romp at the ledge 80 ft up.  80 ft 5.7+  Finish on “Red Knight” (take another 2 quick draws and a #1, Red, Camalot),  or rap off the anchor on the right.

For info. on what Percival's revenge actually was, see the "History" section of The Red Knight's Romp.  Climbing-wise, this is probably the slightly better route.

Protection Suggest change

4 quick draws ( 5 if using the alternate start and clipping the belay-ledge bolt as protection). 2 more quick draws and a #1 Red Camalot if finishing on Red Knight as one long pitch.
