Not on the Knight proper, this burly little line ascends the seam on the clean, vertical wall behind the Knight. It's in your face right off the ground with hard pinching and side-pulls up the poddy crack. The surrounding face is largely devoid of features and smooth, uncharacteristic for a dolomite route. Sustained, bouldery climbing leads to 2/3 height, where you can stem out to the backside of the Knight as it leans toward the wall. Chimney the final bit.
The gear is decent, but it's all small and fiddly...be careful!
On the wall behind the Knight. It starts out of the notch at the top of the blocky corridor on the steep backside of the Knight (with Pangs of Battle). Approach from Yellow Knight or Pangs of Battle.
Small stoppers and TCUs. Small offset nuts would be great. Cold shut anchors.
