Located to the right of the Riddler and to the left of Riders on the Swarm. The climb starts with some techy moves then eases up for a bit with some fun movement to a roof in the middle of the route. Here the difficulty increases, pull through this roof then up some more techy face climbing to some good holds. Try to recover here as the climbing gradually becomes more inverted to a second roof at the top of the wall, pull this roof and make a couple moves to the anchors. Probably want a 70m rope, though it looks like a 60m will barely get you down.

5 out of 5 stars Been looking at that line for a year now.

I am going to be getting on this thing this weekend. Super stoaked, can't wait to see how it climbs. How ever it turns out I can't wait to climb it. Thanks again Lucas for all the time and hard work put into bolting this steller line!
