Comments: This pitch is part of the original Escape Artist line. FA: Ed Webster and Chester Dreiman - October, 1982

Over the years, most parties have opted for the easier "broken corner" to the left of what is now known as the Lightning Bolt Crack, dropping the overall rating of Escape Artist down to 5.9+/5.10a. However, Ed and Chester originally climbed this pitch as part of Escape Artist. They returned the next fall to climb the FA of Comic Relief in September, 1983.
