Description 

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.

Location 

Just right of The Executioner.

Protection 

2 bolts and a single rack to #2 Camalot.
