Just Left of Kudos. See Mike Carville's 1991 guide book or the current topo on the main Emeralds page for information and location. Shade till noon then shaded by trees. This is one of the 3 original routes on the Kudos Kliff (Duppy conquer, Kudos and Ambushed in the night) put up by Mike Carville in 1989. The other routes on this wall were put up since 2005
Bolts and lower off anchors. Bolts were recently added by permission of Mike Carville to make the climb less sporty

Another nice route. In particular, the upper headwall has some very nice movement up a clean face. However, some care should be exercised clipping the second bolt on this route and the one to the right because if you muff the clip you are gonna come real close to hitting the deck. Not sure why this is the case because the second bolts could certainly have been placed a bit lower and clipped easily (in fact it appears that the original second bolt was actually removed and the new bolt is a foot and half higher...puzzling).

I Really like this route. Technical, tricky and powerful with some old school spice.
