The direct [and arguably the proper] finish to It's Only Entertainment which doesn't seem to get the attention it deserves. Where Entertainment breaks left, continue straight up on pinches and edges following a faint seam. Equally as good and spicy as the more celebrated variation.


Start on It's Only Entertainment. Walk off or lower off of tat on slung tree above Entertainment. TR to clean.


Same as Entertainment, (G, hands and fingers) then only a few pieces of small pro at the top (#1 C3 or a wire or two). The top is exciting, but safe. No anchor.

There's some great climbing on this protected by good but small gear (bring RPs). I found it stout in the grade and notably harder than White Knight.
