Another unrelenting burl-fest. Lots of big moves off of decent holds.
According to the Edward's guide, on the first ascent, Requist clipped only 4 of 11 bolts to save time.


Start immediately right of Buddhist Palm on the obvious egg cobble. Meet Buddhist Palm at the anchors.


Bolts with chain draws.

Yes, if I recall from the video, Normal Guy said it "wasn't as good as Better Than Life".
