Starting just right of the Executioner, scramble up to a high first bolt, then cut right to a seam. Follow the seam into a chimney of sorts until it deposits you at a roof. Clip a bolt, pull the roof, then follow the hand crack above to an anchor that is shared with the Executioner. The crux is passing the first bolt.


Just right of The Executioner.


2 bolts and a single rack to #2 Camalot.
