Begin as with Pick Pocket climbing the initial 20' flake section and clipping the bolts out left. When the flake ends stay left of the right angling crack. This prompts increasingly harder moves involving some slopers for the left hand. Leave the crack via an obvious pocket, the crux, and power up through crimps. The climbing eases a bit but never really lets up, which delivers quite the pump. One of Kevins first TS contributions, and a fine one at that.
Same start as Pick Pocket but heads straight up on its own bolt line.

Some feel that this is such a squeeze job that its not worth doing. I disagree with that attitude. Great line fun moves Yes you climb up about 5 bolts on PP, then cut left Amazing climb.

It does seem at first like a bit of a squeeze, but the truth is that Pick Pocket trends right for the first 2/3's of the route where Kyber goes straight up. Although they share the same starting moves, they DO have separate bolt lines, allowing climbers to climb either route independently. Anyone who has climbed both routes would know these facts and realize that word "squeeze job" doesn't really apply.
