Another good steep line on the back side of the Knight. Start in the blocky corridor with a thin move off the ground, juggy edges and sidepulls lead to the 3rd bolt, powerful and sequential between 3rd and 5th bolts (with the crux being a long pull over a small bulge), once you hit the jug at the 5th bolt you can stem to the canyon wall behind you, finish with airy stemming to the anchors. Good variety and provocative moves.

If you're still up here cranking at dusk, you'll find out where the route name came from and where the guano on the lower jug rails came from too (don't worry, this section climbs much cleaner than it looks).


In the center of the steep back side of the Knight. Starts out of the blocky corridor 10' left of Pangs of Battle.


6 bolts to shuts.
