Description 

This route is 2 lines right of Fright Train on the undercut right side of Training Wall. Get up to the undercut rail and easily clip the first bolt. Pull up to good pockets and yard your feet onto the rail. The route basically follows the bolt line straight up. Great moves in spite of (because of?) 3 silky smooth 2-finger pockets round out a crux and then some spiny dishes and crimps over a bulge will get you to the top.

  • If this is 11d, then China Crisis is 12c ... or if China Crisis is 12a, then this is 11b.

Protection 

8 bolts to anchor
