A little play on the two movies that came out about magic. Evan Hau describes it in Gripped magazine V17.03, 06/07 2015:

"The route can also be broken into 3 sections in reference to the movie: an easy intro slab (the pledge), a V13 crux (the turn), and a V9/10 exit crux (the prestige). The route features tufa textured blocky holds and technical movement which is typical for Planet X."

from sendage:

"After some time wandering around looking for the perfect project, this is the line that caught my attention and rekindled the psych. A powerful V13 crux leads to a perfect jug right before an amazing final roof encounter"


Adjacent line to the Illusionist and marked as a project on the picture. #10
