Bouldery start left of Original Sin. Then get ready to crimp. After bolt 3 it gets thin. Work through a technical and delicate crux to a big move finally. This route feels a bit run-out for Riverside, but the falls are very clean (except for the fall between 2 and 3). To be honest when trying to redpoint you are glad there are not more bolts to clip. Small holds.


Just to the left of Original Sin shares the anchors.


8 well placed bolts. Anchor-chains.

Finally sent the crimpy sequencial monster today. The guidebood addendum calls it 13a, and I fully agree. Very left arm pumpy, long fall potential, and micro crimps at the upper crux. I've tried other 13s that are easier than this. Good luck:)

Even thought it's short, I think this warrants 3 stars. Except for the feet at the 1st move, there's zero choss! Thoughtful and powerful sequences and moves above the bolts!
