This route links the best of The Riddler and The Joker into one straight-up combination. Tackle the first two cruxes of The Joker, then pull around the arete to the left on crimps (watch your feet!) and head up the corner and finishing headwall of The Riddler. Steep, continuous, varied, tricky, and "easy" by Easter standards - what more could you ask for? It's a great warm-up for the "real" (i.e. harder) routes.

I guess it is "easy" compared to the other routes at this cliff, but this combination is much harder than either the Joker or the Riddler as it combines the hardest parts of both, though you do get a pretty decent rest before switching routes. Very continuous, challenging climbing.
