The king line of the Coliseum resisted all challengers until Ben Spannuth stepped into the ring in 2012.

Grind through the bottom few bolts of Apollo to warmup, then break right to perform a long move before a difficult boulder problem on great stone. The boulder can be done with careful body positioning and several tic-tac moves or with a powerful deadpoint.

After a small rest at the base of the dihedral, gear up for some double-digit bouldering involving a condition-dependent pinch, wicked core tension, and a dramatic swing.


Start on Apollo, and then instead of clipping bolt 6, step right and proceed upwards to the looming dihedral.


Bolts to a bolt anchor.
