Description 

If Soul Caliber left you wanting more, do this sit-start. The River Styx adds some bigger, harder moves and spans the entire face of the boulder.

Sit start (butt in the dirt) on a mega-jug flake at the bottom left of the overhanging face. Make a massive move to a tiny, sharp crimp on a black pluton. Hang tight through a quarter-pad crimp and a decent sloper before finishing up on Soul Caliber.

The grade is very tentative.

Location 

Sit-start at the bottom left of the overhanging face.

Protection 

Pads. You risk bouncing off the lower boulder once you get onto Soul Caliber. The lower part of the climb is safe, although you do slump against a small boulder when you miss the opening move.
